Charges filed after crash that killed TC men

TRAVERSE CITY — A Sparta man faces two criminal charges following a fatal traffic accident that killed two Traverse City men outside Grand Rapids.

John Pomeroy, 49, and William Kochis, 29, died when a pickup truck struck their vehicle on U.S. 131 South in Kent County’s Plainfield Township in September.

Prosecutors charged Patrick Allen Doerr, 58, with two counts of moving violation causing death last month. Each count carries penalties of up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.

Doerr appeared in district court for a pre-trial conference Tuesday, prosecutors said.
