MONROE, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan State basketball strength and conditioning coach has been charged with reckless driving causing death following a July crash that killed two people.

Monroe County authorities say a pickup truck driven by 37-year-old Todd Moyer struck the rear of a car on U.S. 23 in southeastern Michigan. Thirty-five-year-old Gladys Johnson and her 5-year-old daughter were killed. The Lansing State Journal reports the county prosecutor’s office says Moyer was texting while driving.

Court records don’t list a lawyer for Moyer. He was arraigned Monday and is due back in court later this month. The charge is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
