AUSTIN, Minn. - An Elkton man is charged with driving drunk at about 120 mph when he crashed a Cadillac and killed two friends near Austin a year ago.
Forty-four-year-old Jason Fredrickson was charged Tuesday in Mower County with six felony counts of criminal vehicular homicide.
According to the complaint, Fredrickson drove a 2009 Cadillac STS into a ditch Feb. 25 while Jake Moe and Luke Unverzagt, both 32 and from Austin, were passengers. Both Unverzagt and Moe were thrown from the car and died. Fredrickson broke his ankle.
A State Patrol reconstruction says the car went airborne, snapped a utility pole and stopped after hitting a tree and another pole. Sheriff Terese Amazi says the car was "obliterated."
The Austin Daily Herald reports Fredrickson is due in court March 21.
