Charges have now been filed against a man who nearly took out two first responders Wednesday night who were working the fatal crash near Eldon.

Dillan Heffelfinger, 22, of Osage Beach was charged yesterday with DWI as a prior offender and operating a vehicle in a careless and imprudent manner.

His bond was set at $5,000.

According to the Miller County Sheriff, Heffelfinger drove through the crash site at a high rate of speed, nearly striking a deputy and firefighter.

When police caught up with Heffelfinger, his blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.
