JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man is facing felony charges stemming from a crash that took the life of a Belcourt teen earlier this month.

Authorities say 54-year-old Wilmer Duane Nadeau was eastbound on I-94 July 18 when he entered the median and rolled east of Jamestown. A 17-year-old passenger, Daniel Short, was ejected from the vehicle and died on the scene.

KQDJ (https://bit.ly/2uXWFt0 ) reports Nadeau was initially arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. It was later discovered that the vehicle involved was stolen from a rural residence in Spiritwood.

Nadeau was initially charged with misdemeanor DUI. He’s now been charged with five felonies including two counts of criminal conspiracy, two counts of unauthorized use of a vehicle and one count of child neglect. It was not immediately clear if Nadeau has an attorney.
