A preliminary hearing was held in Divide County for a man charged with three counts of manslaughter for a rear-end collision that resulted in the deaths of a driver and two young children.
 
William Koehler, of Florida, faces three class B felony charges.
 
The prosecution called one witness at the hearing, a sheriff who testified that evidence suggests Koehler was neither under the influence nor speeding at the time of the collision.
 
However, the evidence does suggest Koehler may have been using his cell phone just prior to striking the vehicle, which was stopped on the road for construction.
 
The judge determined there was probable cause for the case to move ahead.
 
If convicted, Koehler faces up to 30 years in prison. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
