LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Virginia truck driver is headed to trial on charges stemming from a November crash that killed a Lancaster County man and his 2-year-old son.

Mawuyrayrassuna E. Yaogan Noviho, 22, of Newport News, was held for court during a preliminary hearing Thursday.

Noviho faces two counts of homicide by vehicle, one count of aggravated assault by vehicle, and five summary violations for the November 12 crash that killed 40-year-old Joshua A. West and his son on Route 222 near Landis Valley Road in Manheim Township.

West's wife, 37-year-old Katie M. West, and their 4-year-old daughter were injured.

West, of Denver, crashed into Noviho's tractor-trailer and overturned.

Summary charges against Noviho allege that he was traveling too slow for conditions and below the minimum speed limit, and failed to move the slow-moving truck off the roadway.

His formal arraignment was scheduled for September 27.
