Madison man charged in crash that killed three teens

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Madison man suspected of speeding and driving drunk before a crash that killed three high school seniors earlier this month is facing numerous criminal charges in Dane County, including reckless homicide.

A criminal complaint says 30-year-old Eric Mehring told a sheriff's deputy investigating the Oct. 2 crash in the town of Middleton that it happened because of "too much speed and more drinks that I should have had to drive."

Killed in the crash were Madison West senior Simon Bilessi and Middleton High seniors Evan Kratochwill and Jack Miller.
