LOCKRIDGE, Iowa (AP) - A southeastern Iowa man has been charged with vehicular homicide for a March crash that killed a passenger in his car.

The Hawk Eye reports that 21-year-old Maxwell Spalla, of Lockridge, was charged earlier this week with vehicular homicide while under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

The crash happened around 1:30 a.m. March 6 near Brighton. Investigators say Spalla was driving the pickup when he lost control, left the roadway and rolled. A passenger, 21-year-old Jacob Nelson of Lockridge, died. Another passenger, 20-year-old Brett Scott of Fairfield, was seriously injured. Spalla was also injured.
