Wayland man charged in July crash that killed newlyweds

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.
