MAUSTON (WKOW) – An Adams man is charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle in a July boat crash on Castle Rock Lake that left one person dead.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, if 22-year-old Christopher Collins is convicted, he could possibly face 25 years in prison.

The boat crash killed 23-year-old Michael Miklavicic of Friendship.

The complaint said Collins was driving a boat with four passengers when he struck a rock.  Authorities said Collins told a deputy he heard someone yell a warning and unsuccessfully tried to steer around a bridge support.  Collins said he had four or five beers before the crash.  Authorities said his blood alcohol level was 0.13 percent.

A message left at the office of Collins' attorney on Sunday was not immediately returned.
