WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — A Texas man is facing two counts of manslaughter in North Dakota for allegedly causing a traffic crash that killed two motorcycle drivers from Montana.

Authorities allege that Joshua Everett tried to pass a semitrailer on state Highway 1804 near Trenton on Thursday night and collided head-on with the two oncoming motorcycles.

The Highway Patrol identified the victims as 20-year-old Blake Reynolds of Fairview, Mont., and 18-year-old Edmund Kimmel of Roundup, Mont.

Everett could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. Court documents do not list an attorney or a hometown for him. He is due back in court on July 9, at which time he might enter pleas to the charges.
