MESA, Ariz. (AP) - An Apache Junction man is accused of manslaughter and endangerment after allegedly causing a car crash while driving under the influence of four drugs.

Bond was set at $100,000 at Monday’s initial court appearance for 58-year-old Mark Christian Honicky.

He doesn’t have an attorney yet.

Honicky was arrested after last Friday afternoon’s crash in Mesa.

He’s accused of hitting another vehicle from behind while driving 65 mph in a 45-mph zone.

Police say a passenger in the other vehicle was killed and the driver injured.

Their names haven’t been released.

Police say Honicky told officers he passed out behind the wheel and doesn’t remember the crash.

They say Honicky allegedly admitted using heroin and methamphetamine the night before the accident and taking two other drugs the morning of the collision.
