CLYDE -- Bond has been set at $1 million for a northeast Ohio man charged after troopers say he was traveling at more than 125 mph when his car struck a minivan, killing a couple.

Andrew D. Gans of Franklin Township faces two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide with a reckless specification after Thursday night's crash on the Ohio Turnpike, where both vehicles burst into flames.

The Toledo Blade reports that bond was set at $500,000 for each count for the 24-year-old Gans at a hearing Monday in Sandusky County court.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the victims -- Wilbur and Margaret McCoy, both 77, of Toledo -- were wearing seatbelts when they were hit and were trapped inside of the minivan.
