OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 27-year-old man has been charged with vehicular homicide for the crash death of a motorcyclist in Omaha.

The Douglas County attorney’s office says Nicholas Colabello’s first court hearing is scheduled for Tuesday. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment for Colabello, who lives in Papillion (puh-PIHL’-yuhn).

Police say the collision happened around 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Investigators say a westbound car driven by Colabello turned left in front of a motorcycle operated by 31-year-old Dustin Roof, of Council Bluffs, Iowa. Police say Roof was taken to an Omaha hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The county attorney’s office says Colabello’s blood tested out above the legal limit for alcohol.
