WARREN — Two Warren men have been charged following a fatal crash at 10 Mile and Ryan roads on Feb. 25.

Tayasukh Ayman, 20, and Golam Chowdhury, 22, were arraigned by 37th District Court Judge John Chmura on Feb. 29. Both were charged with reckless driving causing death, a felony punishable up to 15 years in prison, and reckless driving causing serious injury, a five-year felony.

At approximately 3:40 p.m. on Feb. 25, Ayman was driving with a passenger in a black Honda Accord traveling north on Ryan through the 10 Mile intersection. A second black Honda Accord was traveling south on Ryan with three occupants in the vehicle. As the driver of the Accord with three occupants attempted to turn left into the parking lot of Tim Hortons on the northeast corner of the intersection, it was struck by the Accord traveling northbound. In the vehicle driven by Ayman, the 53-year-old Warren man in the front passenger seat was dead on the scene and a 25-year-old Warren woman was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she was said to be in critical condition. Ayman sustained injuries as well and was transported to the hospital where he remained at press time.

According to police, Chowdhury was driving in a gray Toyota Camry next to Ayman. Witnesses at the scene reportedly said both Ayman and Chowdhury were driving recklessly and may have been racing.

“Not guilty” pleas were entered on behalf of both Ayman and Chowdhury. Chmura set bail for both men at $50,000 cash or surety.

Police said Ayman’s driving record shows several previous citations and crashes.

Chowdhury was ordered to appear in court on March 14 for a probable cause hearing.

Neither suspect had a defense attorney listed in court records at press time.

“Here again we see the dangers of reckless driving. One person is dead, and another is critically injured as a result of two drivers making the choice to ignore the posted speed limits and engage in some type of racing which cost an innocent and uninvolved resident their life,” said Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer. “Now, the drivers involved are facing serious charges for an incident which was completely avoidable. This case should serve as a reminder to all drivers to slow down and obey the rules of the road.”

Police said the man was ejected from the vehicle and that he was the lone occupant.

The man was transported to the hospital where he was later declared dead.
