ELK RIVER, Minn. (AP) - Jurors have convicted a man of driving while high on drugs and causing a fatal crash in Sherburne County.

Thirty-seven-year-old Juan Garcia-Morales was found guilty Wednesday of criminal vehicular homicide in the death of 33-year-old Matthew Barthel, of Big Lake, on Feb. 22.

Barthel, a husband and father of two young children, was on his way to work at the Monticello School District when he was killed. Toxicology tests found methamphetamine and amphetamine in Garcia-Morales’ blood at the time of the crash.
