19-year-old Worthington man facing multiple felony charges after fatal July crash near St. Kilian

A Worthington teen is facing four felony charges following the July crash that resulted in the death of another Worthington teen and injuries to six others.

Sylius Andrew Kamm, 19, faces a charge of second-degree manslaughter, as well as a charge of criminal vehicular homicide and two charges of criminal vehicular operation.

Law enforcement and emergency personnel were dispatched at approximately 8:10 a.m. July 6 for a motor vehicle crash at the intersection of Nobles County 15 and Nobles County 18 near St. Kilian. Involved were a 1995 Chevy pickup, which was being operated by Kamm, and a 2005 Chevy Silverado crew cab pulling a flatbed trailer hauling construction equipment.

There were multiple injuries at the scene and, of the five adult males in the Silverado, four were taken to local hospitals. The fifth, Eric Fuentes, died at the scene from what a medical examiner called multiple blunt force injuries.

The mother of passengers of the pickup driven by Kamm told law enforcement that the app Life360 showed Kamm was driving at an approximate speed of 81 mph at the time of the crash. One of the passengers in the pickup driven by Kamm sustained life-threatening injuries and remains hospitalized after coming out of a coma earlier this month.

Kamm was arrested Aug. 4 at his parents’ Worthington home. He’s lodged in the Nobles County Jail and is scheduled to make his initial appearance before Judge Sherry Haley at 3:45 p.m. Aug. 18 in Nobles County District Court.
