MIDLAND - A Midland man's list of charges just got longer.

28-year-old William Hale can add manslaughter and aggravated assault for last weekend's crash that killed a woman and badly injured another.

18-year-old Ariel Corley died in the October 11th wreck on the Loop 250 service road, just south of Anetta.

Investigators believe Hale was behind the wheel of the SUV at the time of the crash.

Police say the SUV ran off the road, hit a concrete culvert, flipped, and then caught on fire.

Hale and 18-year-old Emily Thon were injured in the accident.

After being treated at the hospital, Hale was arrested on half a dozen unrelated warrants.
