BETHALTO, Ill. (AP) — Two more people have been charged in connection with an August crash that killed three members of a southwestern Illinois family.
An 18-year-old was charged earlier this month after prosecutors alleged he drove under the influence of alcohol, ran a stop sign and struck the vehicle the Cafazza family of Bethalto was driving. They were all pronounced dead at the scene.
Now, prosecutors have charged 55-year-old David P. Thomae and 23-year-old Brandon M. McKinnon with permitting a violation of the liquor control act causing death. Bail has been set at $15,000 each.
Blake Jones, 18, of Worden, Illinois has been charged with three counts of DUI resulting in death following an August car crash.
