FARIBAULT, Minn. (AP) — A Faribault man is accused of driving while impaired in a fatal river crash.

Twenty-two-year-old Mitchell Ryan Bongers faces arraignment in Rice County District Court Wednesday in the crash that killed 20-year-old Brittney Landsverk. She was a passenger in a car that plunged into the Cannon River in April. Her body was found in June, less than a mile downstream from the crash site.

The Faribault Daily News says Bongers faces felony charges, including causing a fatal accident with a blood alcohol content above .08. Bongers also faces misdemeanor charges.

Bongers was critically injured in the crash. Two other passengers weren't hurt.
