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