Posted by on Monday, April 9th, 2018 @ 2:33 pm.

KNOX CO., Ind. - The Knox County Prosecutor’s Office has filed two counts of Driving While Intoxicated Causing Death, a Level 5 Felony, against Kyle Mason, 34, of Oaktown. The criminal charges stem from an incident that occurred during the early morning hours of February 4, 2018 near Oaktown. 

Mason was issued a summons to appear in court for his initial hearing on May 21 at 10:00 a.m. in Knox County Circuit Court.

On February 4 at approximately 1:00 a.m., Mason was four-wheeling in a field near his home when he inadvertently drove off an embankment and into the Wabash River. Mason and his front seat passenger, Cody Meeks, 33, were able to get out of the vehicle and swim to the embankment to get help. Kyle’s wife, Breezie Mason, 33, and Cody’s wife, Meaghan Meeks, 32, were not able to get out from the back seat area and drowned.

During the investigation it was determined that Mason had a blood alcohol content above the legal limit at the approximate time he drove off the embankment and into the Wabash River.
