A Danville man is facing charges a year after a woman he allegedly gave alcohol to while underage killed a Pittsburg man by driving the wrong way on a Lafayette freeway, a Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control spokesman said.
ABC spokesman John Carr said Saturday that McKay was charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated because she was driving with a blood-alcohol content twice the legal limit, and is now serving a prison term.
But ABC investigators discovered where McKay acquired the alcohol she drank before driving that morning through its Target Responsibility for Alcohol-Connected Emergencies program, Carr said.
Earlier this month the agency filed a report with the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office alleging that Danville resident Eric Clayton had given McKay alcohol just before the crash.
Clayton has been charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor and faces a maximum sentence of up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 13, Carr said.
