LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A man has been charged in the crash death of an 8-year-old boy in Lincoln.
Court records show 22-year-old Brandon Valentine was charged Thursday with manslaughter. The records don’t list the name an attorney who could comment for him.
The boy was a passenger in his father’s car on March 16. Lincoln police say the car pulled into an intersection after stopping and was hit by a large pickup truck. Jesse King was thrown from his car, while his son, Camden King, was trapped inside the wreckage. Both were taken to a Lincoln hospital, where Camden was pronounced dead.
A court document says investigators reported that the pickup’s air bag module indicated Valentine’s truck was going 67 mph when it struck King’s car. Valentine has said he was going 45 mph.
