LEWISTON -- A 24-year-old Lewiston man is charged with felony vehicular manslaughter for a weekend crash that killed another man.

Kyle N. Rios also was charged in 2nd District Court on Monday with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in an injury or death.

The Lewiston Tribune reports Rios was being held in the Nez Perce County jail with bail set at $100,000. A preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 11.

Charging documents show 53-year-old Paul Stuk of Peck failed to yield at an intersection in East Lewiston early Sunday and Rios' car collided with Peck's. Peck died at the scene.

Rios had walked about a block away from the accident when he was apprehended. Blood tests were taken to determine if he was legally intoxicated.
