MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison man is accused of driving drunk and causing a fatal crash near Sun Prairie.

Forty-two-year-old Lawren Prisk is charged with homicide by drunken driving. Prosecutors say Prisk was driving on county Highway N last month when he hit a Volkswagen Beetle from behind. A passenger in the Beetle, 20-year-old Conor Dunleavy, died at University Hospital later that day.

The State Journal (http://tinyurl.com/8bpwshc ) says the driver of the Beetle, Jamie Lauter, suffered a skull fracture, seven fractured vertebrae and a broken shoulder blade.

Prisk is free on $10,000 bail after a court appearance in Dane County Monday.
