Man charged in accident

SANDPOINT A Texas man is charged with vehicular manslaughter in connection with a deadly crash on U.S. Highway 95 last year.

Zachary Brandon Henager is being prosecuted at the misdemeanor level. Hes accused driving imprudently on the snow-covered highway, either by traveling at a rate of speed that was too fast for conditions, being inattentive or having unsafe tires.

Henager, a 24-year-old who now lives in Moody, Texas, is scheduled to make an initial appearance in Bonner County Magistrate Court on Jan. 25. He is free own his own recognizance while the case is pending.

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

Idaho State Police said Henager was southbound when he lost control of the Mazda coupe he was driving, crossed into the northbound lane and crashed head-on into a tractor-trailer.

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.
