A Florida man has been charged with five counts of vehicular homicide following a crash that killed a Livingston County woman and several other members of her family.
29-year-old Dayren Rocubert was driving the tractor trailer that cross over the median on I-75 in Shelby County, north of Dayton, on Christmas Eve. The truck struck two vehicles with family members traveling together for the holidays.
A complaint filed in Sidney Municipal Court states that Dayren Rocubert caused the death of four people as well as the unlawful termination of another’s pregnancy. He entered a not guilty plea. Bond was set at at $125,000, with a pretrial conference scheduled for Jan. 30. Court records indicate the charges are “drug or alcohol” related.
One of the vehicles the truck hit was driven by 32-year-old Lauren M. Hahn of Westland, with her mother, 63-year-old Kimberly A. Siegrist of Brighton, as a passenger. The other, driven by 32-year-old Jeremy D. R. Boehne of Farmington, had his wife, Karen M. Boehne, as a passenger. She was also the daughter of Siegrist and pregnant at the time of her death.
The Boehnes married earlier this year and met while at Hartland High School, where Hahn also was a graduate.
