(Neb.)- Minatare Man Faces Charges In Fatal Crash
GERING, Neb. (AP) - A Minatare man could go to trial next month on vehicular homicide and drunken driving charges he faces in a fatal crash.
21-year-old Drew Schmaltz also faces a manslaughter charge. Jurors in his trial would deem whether he's guilty of vehicular homicide, the lesser offense of manslaughter or not guilty.
Police say Schmaltz was driving a vehicle carrying five other men when it went off the road and rolled three times. Five of the six people in the vehicle were ejected, and 21-year-old Taylor Magdaleno died.
Court records say that at the time of the crash, Schmaltz had a blood alcohol level of .155, nearly twice the legal driving limit.
