The Chandler Kania trial continued Tuesday with testimonies from state troopers, firefighters, a paramedic and a forensic scientist.

Authorities say Kania was driving drunk on the wrong side of Interstate 85 in July 2015 when he was involved in a head-on collision, killing three people and injuring a fourth.

Kania pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree murder and one count of reckless driving, though he pleaded guilty to other charges.

Capt. Joel Massey of the Orange Rural Fire Department testified about removing the one surviving victim, a nine-year-old, from the Suzuki that Kania allegedly hit.

“I directed the two guys with me to begin patient care, the patient (Jahnia King) hanging out of the car was moved to the ground,” Massey said. “I checked the pulses of the three victims in the car, but did not feel any.”

He said the driver of the Jeep, Kania, was conscious, breathing, yelling and honking his horn.
