Man who fled police charged after crash kills 2

A southwestern Michigan man whom authorities say fled police and crashed into a car, killing two people, faces five charges including two counts each of operating while intoxicated causing death and fleeing an officer.

A judge set bond at $500,000 for Thomas William Vyverman of Kalamazoo during his arraignment Thursday. Vyverman also is charged with resisting and obstructing.

Kalamazoo police say an officer on foot responding to a call about a driver with a gun tried to stop Vyverman, but he sped away in a truck. A patrol car chased him, but police say they discontinued the pursuit before the truck hit a car carrying 66-year-old Juan Muniz and his wife, 62-year-old Mary Muniz.
