OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha teenager has been arrested on suspicion causing a fatal crash while drunk earlier this month.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Department says 18-year-old Emily Standley was arrested Thursday on suspicion of felony motor vehicle homicide and DUI causing serious bodily injury.

Investigators say Standley was driving Nov. 4 when she ran a red light just north of Omaha and was hit by a pickup.

The crash killed 18-year-old man Jason Hald, who was a passenger in the backseat of Standley’s car. Standley and another passenger, 19-year-old Myles McIntyre, were injured.

Investigators say Standley’s blood alcohol content was .113 - more than the legal driving limit.

Standley remained jailed Friday and could not be reached for comment. It was unclear whether she had an attorney.
