MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK (KSLA) - An Oklahoma man stands accused of killing two girls.

Henry Joseph Lieberman, 26, of McCurtain County, is free on bond after having been booked into the McCurtain County Jail on two counts of first-degree manslaughter.

He is suspected of speeding and driving under the influence at the time of a fatal collision April 20 in the Hochatown area, authorities said.

Phillip McCleery was driving a 2012 Toyota Sienna north on U.S. Highway 259 and turning left into a restaurant parking lot just before 8:30 p.m. that date when his van was struck by a southbound 2005 Chevrolet Colorado pickup that Lieberman was driving, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports.

In the van with McCleery were his wife, daughter, two grandsons and two granddaughters.

The impact killed the two granddaughters ages 11 and 16 and hurt four other people, two critically.

Lieberman's bonds totaled $2 million.
