    A 20-year-old Rhode Island man is facing charges related to a rollover crash on Block Island that killed a 17-year-old passenger.

    The Providence Journal reports Brandon McCrave, of Narragansett, was arraigned Tuesday. He's charged with driving under the influence of liquor, death resulting and related offenses.

    Police say it is McCrave's second DUI offense in five years. Online court records did not list a lawyer for McCrave.

    Police say McCrave was driving a Jeep Wrangler at a high rate of speed Monday in New Shoreham when he missed a corner. The Jeep left the road and overturned, ejecting the 17-year-old passenger, who died at the scene. Two other passengers were uninjured.

    Block Island is located about 13 miles south of the coast of mainland Rhode Island.
