HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An Oahu grand jury on Tuesday formally charged a Nanakuli man with the death of his own father in a suspected drunken driving crash.

The panel returned a first-degree negligent homicide indictment against Logan Awong. Investigators say the 22-year-old was intoxicated when he lost control of his speeding truck on Haleakala Avenue January 23rd. The pickup slammed into multiple objects, including a rock wall, a fire hydrant, a tree and two utility poles.

The suspect's father, Jason Awong, 39, was a passenger in the truck. He died from his injuries.

A Circuit Court arraignment date has not yet been set.
