WASHINGTON – A D.C. man has been indicted on five charges, including manslaughter and drunk driving, for a crash that killed five people in Oxon Hill last October, the Prince George’s County state’s attorney announced Wednesday.

On Oct. 10, 2014, Kenneth Kelley was going more than 70 miles-per-hour on Livingston Road when he slammed into the rear of the victims’ vehicle sending it spinning clockwise into a Pepco pole on the other side of the intersection, authorities say. The victims’ vehicle was stopped at a red light at the time.

Typhani Wilkerson, Tameika Curtis and two children were killed in the crash. A passenger in Kelley’s vehicle, Dominique Green, was also killed.

Kelley has been charged with negligent manslaughter, driving under the influence and related traffic charges.

Authorities say his blood alcohol level at the time of the crash was .14. The legal limit in Maryland is .08.

Kelley is currently in custody at the county’s Department of Corrections. His bond is set at $500,000.
