Andrew Koster charged with reckless homicide as well as felony aggravated DUI

 A charge of reckless homicide has been added in connection with the Sept. 14 death of a Quincy woman.

Andrew Koster, 30, of Clayton, was previously charged with felony aggravated DUI in the ATV crash that also involved 25-year-old Sarah Birsic. Birsic died from injuries she sustained in the crash.

The accident occurred around midnight on Sept. 14 when Adams County Sheriff’s deputies were called to an area owned by Golden Triangle Whitetails outfitters near Clayton. Koster was driving the ATV and Birsic was a passenger thrown from it.

Koster, who is originally from Kalamazoo, Mich,. is free on $10,000 bond and has a court hearing scheduled for Oct. 9.
