ST. HELEN, Neb. (AP) — Several felony charges have been filed in connection with a fatal all-terrain vehicle crash that happened last summer in northeast Nebraska.
Prosecutors charged a 26-year-old man from Yankton, South Dakota, with motor vehicle homicide, tampering with evidence and drunken driving in connection with the crash that happened last June in Cedar County, Nebraska.
The Omaha World-Herald reports 21-year-old Jessi Anderson, of Yankton, South Dakota, was riding on the back of an ATV that failed to negotiate a t-intersection in a rural area, just west of St. Helen and southeast of Yankton.
Cedar County Attorney Ed Matney says the ATV driver provided false information to investigators, and his father tried to conceal evidence of the crash. The father was charged with being an accessory to a felony.
