OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police say the driver of a dump truck involved in a fatal west Omaha crash last month has been charged with one count of misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide.

Police say 59-year-old Ronald Nootz, of Bellevue, was driving the truck the morning of July 22 when he ran a red light and hit a small SUV, killing its driver, 75-year-old Noel Lammers, of Omaha.

The maximum penalty for the misdemeanor charge is a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Nootz’s case was not yet listed in online court records Thursday. It is not known whether he has an attorney in the case.
