ST. FRANCOIS COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

A St. Francois County man is facing involuntary manslaughter charges after rollover crash left a woman dead in January.

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, the crash happened on Route AA near Thomas Road.

Court papers show Richard Dale Gray, 45, of Park Hills, faces charges of felony involuntary vehicle manslaughter (intoxicated), felony assault second degree - operating vehicle while intoxicated resulting in injury, driving while revoked/suspended - first offense.

According to the probable cause statement, troopers say Gray and another man was allegedly going to a friend's house to buy pills. Troopers say Gray was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash and reportedly had a strong odor of an "intoxicating beverage."

Dale R. Ingram told crash investigators he was inside the van along with 22-year-old Kasey L. Stevens, according to the probable cause statement. Ingram went on to tell investigators at the scene that Gray "had a few drinks, had ingested meth, and they all smoked some pot" that night.

Investigators say the Oldsmobile van was speeding south on Route AA when Gray failed to negotiate a curve, skidded across the centerline, went off road and overturned. Gray and Stevens were thrown from the van.

Gray and Stevens received serious head injuries and were flown to a St. Louis hospital. Ingram was taken to a Farmington hospital and later transferred to a St. Louis hospital.

Investigators say Gray was arrested while at the hospital.

Stevens died from her injuries on January 19.

A warrant was served to Gray by the St. Francois County Sheriff's Office on March 22.

His next court appearance is scheduled for April 4 in Farmington.
