The brother of an Owen County man killed in a car wreck early Wednesday was charged with driving under the influence.
Other charges are pending against Lamonte Richardson, 55, of Owenton, who was driving the car in which his brother was a passenger, officials said.
Richardson lost control of his car on Frank Clark Road, 12 miles south of Owenton, state police said in a news release. His passenger, Brian Richardson, 59, died.
The Richardsons were trapped in the car for several hours until a passerby spotted them about 7 a.m., police said. Rescue workers extracted Lamonte Richardson, who was uninjured, but his brother was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of death was not immediately released. State police are investigating.
