COLUMBIA - Officers arrested Spencer M. Gordon on Monday for one count of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of second degree assault following the fatal crash that killed 24-year-old Michelle Morrow and injured 21-year-old John Kalogeris on December 6, 2012 on Mo. 163.

According to a report provided by the Columbia Police Department, the crash occurred when Gordon's 2000 Volkswagon Beetlecar crossed the center line into another lane, hitting the 2000 Ford F150 pickup, which then struck the center median barrier and overturned several times.

Gordon's blood alcohol content level was above the legal limit of .08. His bond has been set at $9,000 for the two counts of assault.
