OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 21-year-old man accused of drunken driving before a fatal car crash in Nebraska has been charged with motor vehicle homicide.

The Douglas County Attorney’s Office announced the charge against Kalib Woerner on Thursday, a day after 21-year-old Jacob Blum, of Gretna, died from injuries sustained in the Sunday crash.

Omaha television station KETV reports (https://bit.ly/1CelbAm ) a judge on Friday set Woerner’s bond at $50,000.

Blum was a passenger in a vehicle Woerner was driving when the car lost control and eventually struck a wooden utility pole. Authorities say Woerner’s blood alcohol content was above the legal limit to drive.
