Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Authorities have filed additional charges against a man believed to be responsible for a Sunday night collision in central Kentucky that claimed the lives of two people, including a Louisville man, according to a press release.

Kentucky State Police issued an arrest warrant against Bryan Mangan on Monday for additional charges following a fatal crash that happened Sunday in Madison County, Ky. Following an investigation by the Kentucky State Police's Collision Reconstruction Team, Bryan Mangan, 56, of South Bend, Ind., was charged with nine counts of wanton endangerment and one count of driving without a license / negligence in an accident. Mangan is currently incarcerated in the Madison County Detention Center on charges of driving under the influence and driving on a suspended operator's license.

The crash occurred at around 7:30. Kentucky State Police came to the scene of the multi-vehicle collision on I-75N, near mile marker 92 in Madison County.
 
According to police, two people were killed after five vehicles were involved in a series of collisions, which resulted from a crash involving a white 1999 Ford Explorer, which was operated by Mangan. Mangan was traveling north on I-75, near the 91.5 mile marker, when he lost control of his vehicle, which caused him to collide with a guardrail and multiple vehicles, before coming to rest, partially blocking the left lane of the interstate while overturned.
 
Meredith L. Buscher, 22, of Richmond, Ky., was taken to the University of Kentucky Hospital where she died as a result of her injuries. Jeffrey R. Campbell, 30, of Louisville was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Madison County Coroner. Campbell, who was not involved in any of the initial collisions, attempted to provide aid to the crash victims. Clifford H. Steinhauer, 41, of Fort Thomas, Ky., was transported to the University of Kentucky Hospital for treatment.
 
Police say they believe that alcohol was a factor in the incident.
