Frank Dedvukaj has been charged in connection to a pickup truck and moped collision that killed a Michigan State University student last fall.

Dedvukaj is being charged with operating while intoxicated causing death, in relation to the Oct. 18 crash. At the time of the accident, investigators did not believe alcohol was involved. The warrant was issued last Monday.

The student killed in the crash was 20-year-old Sebastian Tyll, of Fenton, Michigan, who was identified the day after the crash.

Tyll was killed in Meridan Township when his moped collided with a pickup truck as he turned his moped from Hagadorn Road to Mount Hope Road, according to police. The driver of the pickup truck was wearing a seat belt, and the moped driver was wearing a helmet when the accident happened.

Online court records did not list an attorney for Dedvukaj. He has not yet been arraigned. A preliminary exam conference is scheduled for Aug. 20.

Tyll worked in maintenance at the MSU Greenhouse and was involved in the ROTC program, according to his obituary.

Ingham County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Mike Cheltenham was not available for comment at the time of publication.
