KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A 24-year-old man is accused of drunkenly causing a two-vehicle crash that killed a woman in suburban Kansas City, Missouri.

Jackson County prosecutors charged Carl-Dakota A. Young of Independence with a felony count of driving while intoxicated as a habitual offender.

Court filings allege that Young was intoxicated while driving early last Saturday in Independence when his pickup truck entered oncoming traffic and collided with a car, killing one of its passengers, 45-year-old Patrice Lee of Independence.

Prosecutors have requested a $150,000 bond for Young.

Online court records don’t show whether he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
