A new update in a deadly crash we’ve followed since we broke it on our morning show Wednesday.

Michael Traver is now facing charges after police say he crashed a car into a tree on Spring Creek near Highcrest.  The impact killed his passenger, Juan Lozano, Jr., and caused serious injuries to a 17 year-old girl in the car.

Police say he drove off during a traffic stop because the car was stolen.  Traver faces several charges, including possession of a stolen vehicle, aggravated DUI, and aggravated fleeing.  He’s due in court next month.
