Madison police arrest man for fatal Mineral Point Road crash

Madison police have arrested a man for a crash that killed one person on Mineral Point Road last week.

18-year-old Maurice M. Chandler is facing a first-degree reckless homicide charge, according to a police incident report updated Thursday.

The other charges against Chandler are one count each of knowingly operating motor vehicle while revoked, first-degree reckless injury, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, felony bail jumping and misdemeanor bail jumping.

The crash killed Anthony M. Chung, 22, of Madison. Chung was declared dead at the scene.

In 2015-16, Chung served as the student member of the Madison School Board.

"We send our condolences to the family and friends of Anthony Chung, former Student Representative to the MMSD Board of Education," the school district said in a statement also posted to Twitter.

"He was incredibly impressive," former school board colleague T.J. Mertz says of Chung. "He was someone who reveled in the details, in doing the research and making sure things were right. But that was coupled with a sense of social justice, just a sense of equity," Mertz says.

"He was extremely empathetic, courageous and compelling," former school board colleague Anna Moffit says. "He was always willing to do the work to be a great school board member and was never afraid to articulate his position or challenge the status quo," she says. "This a tremendous loss for our community."
