Driver Charged in Van Accident

A Canton Township truck driver is charged with five counts of "reckless homicide" after he caused an accident with a college van last April.
Indiana prosecutors say 37-year-old Robert Spencer has been driving at least nine hours longer than federal rules permit when his truck crossed over the median on I-69 and collided with the university van.
In the aftermath of the accident... Authorities confused the bodies of Laura Van Ryn of Grand Rapids for survivor Whitney Cerak.
VanRyn's parents kept a vigil at Cerak's bedside in the belief she was their daughter.
The mistake was discovered when Cerak awoke from a coma in June.
