A driver accused in a wreck that killed a Plano couple and three children has been charged today with five counts of manslaughter. The accident happened Sunday after the victims left church.

Plano police say 46-year-old David Calhoun Jones of Metairie, Louisiana, remains hospitalized from injuries suffered in the collision.

Bond is $100,000 for each count.

Police say the Hart family had just left a morning service at Custer Road United Methodist Church in Plano when their minivan was hit by a car that ran a red light.

The victims were Geoff Hart, his wife Christy, their 12-year-old daughter Rebekah and two girls they'd been caring for.

Police say Jones was driving the car that struck the minivan driven by Christy Hart.
