OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 17-year-old Gretna boy has accepted responsibility for causing a three-vehicle collision that killed four people on Easter Sunday.

The boy admitted his role on Thursday in Douglas County Juvenile Court. He was charged with four counts of misdemeanor vehicular homicide. He’ll be sentenced next month. The Associated Press generally doesn’t name juveniles accused of crimes.

The accident occurred around 8:30 p.m. on April 5 northwest of Omaha. Authorities say the boy was driving a pickup north and didn’t halt at a stop sign at an intersection with Nebraska Highway 36. The pickup knocked an eastbound vehicle into oncoming traffic, where it was struck by a westbound vehicle. The four killed were in the eastbound and westbound vehicles.

The boy and his teenage passenger were hospitalized.
