DEVILS LAKE (AP) — A Kentucky National Guard member is facing manslaughter charges after the car he was driving crashed in North Dakota and two fellow guard members were killed.

Prosecutors say 23-year-old Christopher Brandt, of Kentucky, was driving recklessly at high speeds when his car crashed into a tree and rolled over late Wednesday or early Thursday in Devils Lake, N.D. Thirty-one-year-old Ronald Forsyth and 23-year-old Jason Burnette were killed. Brandt and 23-year-old David Duncan were injured. Both were treated and released from a local hospital.

All four were members of the Kentucky National Guard undergoing military engineering training at Camp Grafton, near Devils Lake.

Brandt faces two counts of manslaughter and a count of reckless endangerment.
