DETROIT (WOOD) — A Detroit man has been charged with a felony for allegedly causing a car crash that killed three West Michigan men last year.

On Aug. 18, 2013, 68-year-old Brian Kelley, 31-year-old Daniel Kelly and 19-year-old Keeland Johns — a grandfather, son and nephew from the Grand Rapids area — were headed home from a Tigers game when they were involved in a wreck on Lodge Freeway near Rosa Parks Boulevard in Detroit. They were pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Michael Anthony Miller, 22, was expected to be arraigned Thursday afternoon on a felony charge of reckless driving causing death, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

Prosecutors say Miller was driving north on Lodge Freeway “at a high rate of speed” when he lost control and collided with the victims’ car, which then rolled over.

If convicted, Miller could spend up to 15 years in prison.
