SHELTON, Wash. (AP) — A 19-year-old Bremerton man has been charged with vehicular homicide after he crashed his pickup truck in Olympic National Forest, killing two passengers.

Alexander Mann is to be arraigned Monday in Mason County Superior Court.

The Kitsap Sun says Mann was driving a pickup truck last summer when it swerved off the road and crashed into two trees.

A Mason County sheriff’s report says all five people who were riding in the bed were thrown out. Two of them struck trees and died at the scene. Another man was seriously injured.

Mann was charged last month with two counts of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular assault.

Police say he was intoxicated at the time.

    that should be good for twenty years in prison five years for each count for each person and all the other charges could add up to what ? 30 plus years plus fines he can pay the court after prison time

    Are you serious, my son was killed in the same damn county, the driver killing two people, and he did under three years and is back out drunk driving again.
    Drunk driver’s are treated with kid gloves in Mason county, and it’s complete bullshit!
    Try having a prosecutor say “yes” at a trial when you ask is 18 months all my sons life is worth.
