GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A man has been arrested and charged after a fatal crash in the northeast side of Grand Rapids over the summer, police announced Wednesday afternoon.

Jeremy Stewart Cox, 27, is lodged at the Kent County Correctional Facility and faces charges of Reckless Driving Causing Death and Driving While Suspended Causing Death. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.

A 65-year-old man driving the other car died on the scene. Cox was hospitalized with serious injuries after the crash, but survived.
