JACKSON, Kentucky — State police say they have charged an eastern Kentucky man who was behind the wheel in a deadly crash with three counts of murder, two counts of assault and driving under the influence.

Media cited Kentucky State Police in reporting the charges against 19-year-old Shawn Hardin of Jackson.

Police say he lost control and overcorrected while driving a pickup truck Wednesday night in Breathitt County on Kentucky 3193. The vehicle flipped before hitting an unoccupied house.

Three men — 31-year-old Adam Fugate, 24-year-old Lee Campbell and 19-year-old Pearl Armstrong — were killed in the crash. Two others were injured.

Hardin was taken to Three Forks Regional Jail. He declined to speak to media. It wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.
