LINCOLN, NE – Sentencing has been handed down for a driver charged in a deadly crash last year in Banner County, according to the Norfolk Daily News.
A judge sentenced 25-year-old Juan Maldonado of Lincoln to two years of probation and 120 hours of community service. He pleaded no contest to motor vehicle homicide in connection with the accident that killed 26-year-old Levi Kreitman.
The incident occurred May 3, 2019 at about 7:20 a.m. in the area of Nebraska 92 and P Road. Authorities said Maldonado drove his Chevy Tahoe over the middle line and slammed into Kreitman’s Toyota Corolla. Kreitman, of David City, was pronounced dead at an area hospital.
As part of the sentence, Maldonado was also ordered to take a defensive driving course and write a letter of apology to the victim’s family.
When a person dies because of the negligence of another, that victim’s family may have significant hospital bills, funeral expenses, and living expenses.
