SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A California trucker has been convicted of criminally negligent homicide and sentenced to 18 months in jail for a 2013 crash on Interstate 5 that killed an Oregon man.
The Salem Statesman Journal (https://stjr.nl/1Jum7m3) reports that 28-year-old Gurpinder Singh of Red Bluff was driving a commercial truck pulling a semitrailer as traffic slowed near an intersection at Aurora in northern Marion County.
The State Police said the truck drove over the top of a 1991 Acura Integra and hit the rear of another semitrailer. The driver of the car died. He was 26-year-old Dustin Paul Campbell of Lyons, along the North Santiam River.
Singh’s driver’s license has been revoked.
In a four-day trial that ended Thursday, he was acquitted of manslaughter.
