A southern Kansas man has pleaded not guilty in an accident in May that left two people dead and four injured.

Twenty-four-year-old Miles Theurer, a native of Wellington, faces two counts of involuntary manslaughter and reckless aggravated battery after an accident in May on Kansas 18 two miles from Manhattan.

Theurer, a student at Kansas State University, pleaded Monday in the accident that killed 31-year-old Elizabeth Young of White City and 32-year-old Michael Stanley of Ogden. Theurer and three other Kansas State students in his vehicle were injured.

Prosecutors say Theurer was drunk and driving the wrong way on the highway when he ran head-on into a car driven by Young.

The Manhattan Mercury reports Theurer is out of jail on a $50,000 bond.
