DAVID CITY, Neb. (AP) - A 51-year-old Omaha man has been given probation for causing a collision that fatally injured two brothers from Rising City.

The Columbus Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1Wzd4vo ) that Christopher Pokorny was sentenced last week in Butler County to two years of probation, 400 hours of community service and was told to pay two $500 fines. He’d pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor vehicular homicide.

Authorities say Pokorny was driving east on Nebraska Highway 92 on May 2 last year when his pickup ran into the back of an eastbound minivan that was slowing to turn left. Authorities say two van passengers, 8-year-old Caleb Prellwitz and his 18-year-old brother, Joshua, were injured and died later at a Lincoln hospital.
