OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 34-year-old man has been charged with vehicular homicide for the crash death of a motorcyclist in Omaha.

The Douglas County attorney’s office said in a news release Wednesday that Joseph Madej also is charged with driving under the influence. Madej remains in Douglas County Jail. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Police say the accident occurred a little before 7 p.m. Monday when Madej’s westbound pickup didn’t halt at a stop sign and collided with the northbound motorcycle. The impact knocked the motorcycle into another pickup that was parked nearby, and both caught fire.

Police say 48-year-old Daniel McDonald, of Omaha, was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was riding with him, and she was hospitalized.
