BEMIDJI, Minn. — The man accused of causing a drunken driving crash that killed one woman and badly injured another last Halloween has pleaded guilty to two felony charges.
Anthony Dwayne Calloway, 46, of Bemidji pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of felony criminal vehicular homicide or operation. His plea was entered in Beltrami County District Court. Sentencing is set for Sept. 10.
Calloway was driving a 1987 Dodge Caravan in Bemidji shortly before 1 p.m. Oct. 31 when he swerved into the wrong lane and struck a Honda Odyssey head-on.
A passenger in Calloway’s minivan, 47-year-old Dawn Marie Boyd, died in the crash.
The driver of the Odyssey, Heidi Lee of Bemidji, suffered serious injuries.
Court records show that two-and-a-half hours after the crash, Calloway had a blood-alcohol content of .16, twice the legal limit. Alcohol was found in the vehicle.
