PLYMOUTH, Neb. (AP) - A 39-year-old man has been charged with misdemeanor vehicular homicide in the crash death of a woman who’d been in his car when it collided with another vehicle in southeast Nebraska.

Online court records say Steven Cordis, of Ohiowa, also is charged with driving on a suspended license and of running a stop sign.

The accident occurred around 3:30 p.m. on March 12, about a mile north of Plymouth in Jefferson County. Authorities say Cordis was driving west when he ran a stop sign and his vehicle was struck by a southbound car driven by 60-year-old Mary Pearson, of DeWitt. A passenger in Cordis‘ car, 39-year-old Francisca Campbell, of Lincoln, was fatally injured.

Court records don’t list the name of Cordis‘ attorney. Cordis‘ first court date is March 26.
