(Neb)-Misdemeanor Charged In Fatal Traffic Accident
BRIDGEPORT, Neb. (AP) - A Bayard man has been charged with misdemeanor vehicular homicide in the death of an Alliance woman in an October car accident. 29-year-old Trevor Teichroeb is due in court Jan. 13.
The Nebraska State Patrol says 68-year-old Barbara Fritzler was fatally injured Oct. 18 while waiting for a pilot car at a construction site on U.S. Highway 26, about a mile and a half east of Minatare.
The patrol says Teichroeb's pickup rammed into the rear of Fritzler's car, knocking it into a vehicle ahead of hers.
Fritzler was pronounced dead at the scene while Teichroeb had to be extricated from his vehicle. He was flown by medical helicopter to Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff with serious injuries.
The driver of the other vehicle was not injured and everyone involved in the crash was wearing a seat belt.
