SOUTH FARGO – A truck driver is facing charges in a fatal crash in South Fargo last summer that killed a motorcyclist.

Fifty-six year old James Toner of Long Prairie is facing manslaughter and aggravated reckless driving charges in the June crash.

Toner was making a wide turn when a motorcycle slammed into his rig.  Twenty-nine year old Jason Viestenz of Fargo was killed.  His 10-year old son, who was also on the bike, suffered minor injuries.

Toner is accused of making an improper right-hand turn across several lanes of traffic.
