David William Fincher was arraigned Monday on charges of manslaughter, assault and driving under the influence related to the Sept. 11 crash.

Authorities say the 46-year-old man lost control of a Toyota Tacoma as it turned a corner on Highway 20 and then crossed into oncoming traffic.

The Tacoma collided with a Volkswagen Jetta carrying the 2-year-old girl, who died at the scene. The driver of the Jetta and a 7-year-old boy in the car were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Fincher’s vehicle also hit a Dodge Charger, resulting in two more people being taken to the hospital.
