BLAIR, Neb. (AP) - A 16-year-old from Blair has been given probation for the crash death of one of his friends last year.

On Monday the teen was sentenced to 30 months of probation and ordered to complete 150 hours of community. The boy had pleaded no contest and was convicted of three misdemeanors: vehicular homicide, careless driving and misuse of a learner’s permit. The Associated Press generally doesn’t name juveniles accused of crimes.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says the teen was driving near Blair on Oct. 11 when the vehicle flipped. The teen’s friend, 15-year-old Trent Hill, was fatally injured.
