Knox County Man Summoned for DUI Causing Death Stemming From February Accident that Killed Wife

The Knox County Prosecutor’s Office has filed two counts of Driving While Intoxicated Causing Death, a Level 5 Felony, against an Oaktown man.

Indiana State Police say the criminal charges against 34-year old Kyle Mason stem from an incident that occurred during the early morning hours of Sunday February 4th near Oaktown.

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

Police say at around 1 am February 4th, Mason was four-wheeling in a field near his home when he inadvertently drove off an embankment and into the Wabash River.

They say Mason and his front seat passenger, 33-year old Cody Meeks were able to get out of the vehicle and swim to the embankment to get help.

Kyle’s wife, 33-year old Breezie Mason and Cody’s wife, 32-year old Meaghan Meeks 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.
