OMAHA, NE – A truck driver has pleaded no contest in connection with a crash that killed a motorcycle rider in Omaha last summer.
According to the Omaha World-Herald, 45-year-old George F. Sansing was found guilty by a judge after entering his plea Thursday to a charge of misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide.
Police said Sansing was driving a Freightliner Aug. 24 when he went through a red light in the area of 132nd Street and Industrial Road at about 10:35 a.m. 24-year-old Bryan E. Wright of Omaha was driving a Yamaha motorcycle and crashed into the side of the truck. He was pronounced dead after being taken to Creighton University Medical Center-Bergan Mercy.
Sansing, a resident of Belden, Mississippi, faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine when he is sentenced.
