LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville man accused of manslaughter for the death of two people during a test drive has bonded out of jail.

Friday, Judge Barry Willet granted a defense request that reduced Bryan Lee's bond from $100,000 to $25,000 full cash. Lee was released from Louisville Metro Corrections late Friday morning.

Police say Lee was going more than 100-miles-per-hour while test driving a Dodge Challenger from Commonwealth Dodge on Sunday, August 23. Investigators say Lee crashed into another car on Fern Valley Road killing a woman and her step-father.
