HEATH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — More than three months after a July crash that killed a pair of newlyweds in Allegan County, the driver responsible is facing charges.
Jacob Scot Damron, 21, of Wayland was arraigned Tuesday on four charges, including two counts of operating while intoxicated causing death and reckless driving causing death in the crash that killed Logan and Hannah Allbaugh.
The deadly July 17 crash happened at the intersection of M-40 and 128th Avenue in Heath Township, south of Hamilton. A westbound vehicle ran the stop sign at the intersection, killing the couple and seriously injuring Duane McDonald.
The sheriff’s office identified the people killed as Logan Thunderland Allbaugh, 24, of Holland, and his wife Hannah Mae Allbaugh, 22, of Zeeland. A family friend told 24 Hour News 8 they were married June 23.
Damron is also charged with operating while intoxicated causing serious injury and reckless driving causing serious injury, as well as carrying a concealed handgun, which authorities say they found in his vehicle.
Hear from Allbaugh's father and why he feels the charges are too light Tuesday on 24 Hour News 8 beginning at 5 p.m.
