The charge against Henager arose from a Jan. 21, 2012, crash in Cocolalla.

The northbound semi went out of control and crashed into a southbound semi driven by James Mady, a 49-year-old from Creswell, Ore. Mady was fatally injured in the collision, state police said.

Henager and the driver of the northbound semi, Richard Walston, 58, of Colville, Wash., were seriously injured in the crashes.
