Prosecutors have added a homicide charge against a man accused of crashing his car into a river killing a teenage girl near Denison, Iowa.
Ramon Hernandez now faces a vehicular homicide operating under the influence charge for the death of 15 year old Yoana Acosta. Investigators say Hernandez drove through a farm field with Acosta and three other teens before the car plunged into the Boyer River last month.
Hernandez also faces three counts of distributing a controlled substance to a minor, one of distributing a controlled substance to an adult and four counts of providing alcohol to underage people in the case.
