Logan County attorney Steve Vinton said Jesus Gonzales-Torres will be charged with motor vehicle homicide and reckless driving, both misdemeanors.
Authorities say Roger Beckett was traveling in a minivan on Highway 83 near mile marker 119 just before 5:00 p.m on May 18., when a pickup driven by the 71-year-old Gonzales-Torres, crossed the center line and struck the minivan head-on.
Roger Beckett was pronounced dead at the scene and his wife, Barbara, was seriously injured.
Law enforcement initially said they believed alcohol was involved, however they now do not believe that to be the case.
Roger Beckett’s funeral is next Wednesday.
