LINN COUNTY (KWWL) -

More charges have been filed against a driver involved in a fatal crash in Linn County. 

The Linn County Sheriff's Office says 21-year-old Kyle Slaymaker was headed east in the 4500 block of Urbana Road at around 11:30 p.m. on November 21 when he lost control of his car and collided with a westbound vehicle. Slaymaker's vehicle ended up in the ditch, crashing into a utility pole.

A passenger in Slaymaker's car, 28-year-old Joshua Reed of Center Point, was killed.  Slaymaker and the other driver suffered minor injuries.

Slaymaker, who was originally charged with driving while under suspension, is now charged with homicide by vehicle-operating under the influence, possession of a controlled substance-marijuana first offense and possession of drug paraphernalia according to online court records.

Slaymaker's preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 9.
