NORFOLK (AP) — A Stanton man has been given jail time and probation for the crash death of another driver in Northeast Nebraska.
Stanton County Court records indicate 20-year-old Ried Krutz was sentenced Tuesday to 30 days in jail and 18 months of probation. He’d pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vehicular homicide.
Authorities said a pickup truck driven by Krutz crossed the Highway 24 center line on May 6 and struck an oncoming sport utility vehicle being driven by 63-year-old Jim Hoff, Norfolk. The collision occurred about 2 miles east of Norfolk.
Hoff was pronounced dead at the scene. Krutz was taken to a Norfolk hospital.
