HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) - A UNC-Chapel Hill student accused in a wrong-way crash that killed three people has been released from jail.

Local media outlets report the family of 20-year-old Chandler Michael Kania posted his $1 million bond and left the Orange County courthouse Tuesday. Defense attorney Roger Smith Jr. said Kania will be under house arrest in his home in Asheboro.

Kania faces multiple charges, including second-degree murder and felony death by motor vehicle.

The N.C. Highway Patrol says Kania was driving north in the southbound lanes near the split of I-85 and Interstate 40 in Orange County on July 19 when his Jeep Wrangler collided with a Suzuki.

Killed were 49-year-old Felicia Harris and 46-year-old Darlene McGee, both of Charlotte, and 6-year-old Janiece Smith of New York. A 9-year-old suffered serious injuries.
