LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 54-year-old man has been sentenced to prison for the crash death of a Crete resident last year.

Online Lancaster County District Court records say Diep Dong was sentenced Wednesday. He’d pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide and willful reckless driving after prosecutors lowered the homicide charge from manslaughter. Dong was given three to five years for vehicular homicide and three months for reckless driving, to be served at the same.

Authorities say Dong’s vehicle rammed into an oncoming vehicle when Dong tried to pass in a no-passing zone near Crete on Sept. 18. The dead man was identified as 28-year-old Abraham Raymundo, who lived in Crete.
