OMAHA, Nebraska — Douglas County prosecutors say a teenage driver will be charged with homicide as a juvenile for the deaths of four people in a three-vehicle collision.
A news release from the office of Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine says the 17-year-old boy will face four misdemeanor counts of vehicular homicide. The Associated Press generally doesn't name juveniles accused of crimes.
The accident occurred around 8:30 p.m. on April 5 northwest of Omaha. Authorities say the boy was driving a pickup north and didn't halt at a stop sign at an intersection with Nebraska Highway 36. The pickup knocked an eastbound vehicle into oncoming traffic, where it was struck by a westbound vehicle. The four killed were in the eastbound and westbound vehicles.
The boy and his teenage passenger were hospitalized.
