Adam Young, of Laingsburg, was arraigned Tuesday for a moving violation causing death.

The Ingham County Prosecutor's Office says that this is a "misdemeanor offense and punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year or a fine of not more than $2,000, or both."

Young was arrested following an investigation into the death of a MSU student who was hit while riding her moped.

The investigation was conducted by Michigan State University with assistance from the Ingham Regional Crash Investigation Team.

On January 15, 21-year-old Tiana Seville was killed when the moped she was driving collided with a salt truck driven by Young.

This happened at the intersection of Chestnut Road an Shaw Lane on campus. The intersection is right by the football stadium and is well-traveled by both vehicles and mopeds.

MSU released the following statement after the crash:

"The MSU community is grieving the loss of a student killed in a traffic crash involving an MSU salt truck early this morning."

Seville's friends took to Facebook to mourn with others and share memories of a great loss.

She graduated from Grand Ledge High School in 2015.

She also attended Grand Valley State University before coming to MSU, she was studying kinesiology.
