KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A man accused of leaving the scene of a crash that killed two people, including a high school student, now faces murder charges.

Bradley Woodworth, 45, of Olathe, was charged Friday with two counts of reckless second-degree murder. 

The Oct. 6 crash killed 18-year-old Matthew Bloskey, a Rockhurst High School senior, and 20-year-old Samuel Siebuhr. 

According to Overland Park police, Woodworth's vehicle struck a car driven by Siebuhr, causing Siebuhr to lose control, cross the median and collide with Bloskey’s car. The crash occurred at 151st and Stearns streets.

Witnesses told police that Woodworth and Siebuhr were speeding and "jockeying" with each other on the roadway.

Woodworth was charged in October with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death and booked into the Johnson County Jail. 

His bond is set at $100,000.
