Utah reservation death in crash could lead to federal charges


The death of a 29-year-old man in a crash on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation in Duchesne County earlier this year is under investigation and could lead to federal charges against the vehicle's driver.

Damien Santio, 18, who allegedly has admitted to being the driver, was being held as of Wednesday in the Duchesne County Jail on tribal court charges.

A search warrant affidavit says possible federal charges could include involuntary manslaughter while within Indian country.
