AUSTIN, Minn. - Authorities have released the name of an elderly man killed in a 2-car crash that left a man behind bars on charges of criminal vehicular homicide and DWI.
William Regner, 89, of Austin, was killed in the crash last week at County Rd. 29 and County Rd. 28.
A toxicology report is being done to Christopher Robert Stewart, 31, of Austin, who was charged after the crash.
