COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A man accused of manslaughter in connection to a fatal head-on crash that killed a father and his two young daughters is scheduled to go to trial this summer.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports (https://bit.ly/1mpyLOO) that 27-year-old Ryan Turner is scheduled to be tried for three counts of felony vehicular manslaughter on June 7.

Turner has pleaded not guilty.

Police say Turner was driving his pickup truck northbound in the southbound lane on U.S. Highway 95 Sept. 12 when he crashed into an incoming car. The crash took place just south of Athol in Kootenai County.

The crash killed 33-year-old Mathew-Michael Baroni of Spokane and his daughters, 8-year-old Madilyn and 6-year-old Molly.

Court documents show Turner had a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.155 percent, which is above the legal limit.
