A 19-year-old Hudson man is facing drunk driving charges after a car crash in New Hampshire killed the friend who was riding with him.
Gabriel King is facing a charge of aggravated drunken driving. He was released on $500 cash and $1,500 personal recognizance bail.
Jared Nathan, 21, a former cast member of the PBS children's television show "Zoom," was killed in the crash. Friends said King had been Nathan's roommate at the Walnut Hill School in Natick.
Nathan, who lived in Nashua, N.H., was a third-year acting student at the Juilliard School in New York, friends said. He was home on Christmas break.
The Toyota Camry driven by King crashed into a tree and overturned early Thursday in Hollis, N.H., authorities said.
