JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A 19-year-old southern Indiana man has been charged with reckless homicide in a highway crash that killed a passenger.

Austin Porter of Jeffersonville appeared Wednesday before a Clark County judge who entered a not guilty plea on his behalf. Porter also faces charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs and other charges.

The News and Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1VdGviM ) witnesses told police they saw Porter driving at a high rate of speed, passing traffic and switching lanes before his car flipped onto its side and crashed Feb. 17 along Interstate 265 in Clark County.

An 18-year-old man who was a passenger in the car was killed.

Porter does not yet have an attorney. Porter could not be reached for comment because there was no telephone listing.
