Charges Filed in 2021 Springfield Crash that Killed 2

Prosecutors in Greene County are now filing charges against a man accused of killing two people in 2021.

Gary Calhoun Jr. faces five charges in the incident, which occurred in August of 2021:

  • Two counts of DWI resulting in death
  • Two counts of DWI resulting in the death of another, not a passenger
  • DWI resulting in a physical injury

Investigators say Calhoun was driving a truck along westbound Cherry Street when he ran a red light and crashed into an SUV going north on Glenstone. The impact of the crash caused the SUV to fly into the air and hit a semi-truck traveling south.

Police say Felix Gonzalez and Amber Kendall died in the crash.
