A man police say had marijuana in his system during a March crash that killed a Caledonia woman and critically injured her husband has been charged with reckless and intoxicated driving causing death.
Dillon Michael Clapp, 26, appeared in Kentwood District Court Thursday for a probable cause hearing on charges of intoxicated driving causing death and reckless driving causing death for the March 4 crash that killed 64-year-old Jeri Lynn Hoek. The two felonies are punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
The mother and grandmother was a passenger in a car driven by her husband, 63-year-old Douglas Jack Hoek.
Clapp is also charged with intoxicated driving causing serious injury and reckless driving causing serious injury, both five-year felonies, for injuries suffered by Douglas Hoek.
Clapp, of Kentwood, will be back in court July 8 for a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to send the case to trial. He is free on a $10,000 bond.
The crash happened about 10:25 p.m. at East Paris Avenue and 60th Street SE. Jeri Hoek died at the hospital.
