The man accused of causing a deadly wrong-way crash on State Route 520 last month pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide Thursday.

Michael Anthony Robertson was in a wheelchair when he was arraigned in Seattle. He is being held on $1 million bail.

Prosecutors say Robertson was under the influence of alcohol April 4 when he was driving westbound in the eastbound lanes, colliding with a car driven by 58-year-old Morgan Williams. Williams was killed.

If convicted, Robertson faces a sentencing range of 6 ½ years to 8 ½ years in prison. Last year, the state legislature approved a bill that doubled the standard range for vehicular homicide DUI, making it equal to first degree manslaughter.
