Driver charged with reckless homicide in fatal crash

LA PORTE COUNTY, Ind. -- A man who was allegedly driving drunk and caused a crash that killed a couple from Michigan City has been arrested on charges related to the crash.

Tron Gorbonosenko, 40, has been charged with operating while intoxicated above .15% causing death and two counts of reckless homicide.

On October 6, Gorbonosenko was driving a Ford Mustang east on US20 when his vehicle crossed the center line and collided with a Honda Odyssey driving west, according to the La Porte County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators say Gorbonosenko's blood alcohol level was .17%.

The criminal warrants were issued in La Porte County Superior Court #1 by Judge Michael Bergerson earlier Tuesday morning. Gorbonosenko is charged with two counts of Operating While Intoxicated Above .15% Causing Death, level 4 felony and two counts Reckless Homicide, level 5 felony.

Gorbonosenko's bond was set at $25,000.00.
