Authorities say a 22-year-old Kansas man has been arrested after a fatal collision that ended a vehicle chase in south-central Nebraska.
LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) - A Dawson County news release says Destry Swartz, of Coats, Kan., is charged with vehicular homicide and other crimes. Swartz and a 17-year-old Lexington boy with him were not injured.
Nebraska State Patrol Capt. Jim Parish said Tuesday that the chase began at 11:57 p.m. Monday and ended six minutes later.
Parish says a state trooper had tried to stop a pickup that violated a Lexington traffic signal, but the pickup raced south on U.S. Highway 283. It soon ran a red light and rammed into a westbound pickup, killing its driver, whose name hasn't been released.
Swartz remains in custody. Online court records don't list his attorney's name.
