Wichita driver charged in fatal August crash

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man has been charged in an August traffic accident that killed a pregnant woman and the premature baby she delivered before dying.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1yOVMz1 ) 25-year-old Zachary Brown was charged Wednesday with two counts of involuntary manslaughter. He also faces three counts of aggravated battery.

Police say Brown was driving an SUV that struck a car at a southwest Wichita intersection on Aug. 19.

Twenty-one-year-old Trevadawn Pauley was riding in the front seat of the car and was critically injured. Pauley was seven months pregnant, and doctors delivered her daughter before she died. The newborn died about a week later.

Brown is being held at the Sedgwick County jail on $50,000 bond. Online records didn’t indicate an attorney.
