Lantry man pleads not guilty in fatal traffic crash

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A man accused of driving recklessly and causing a fatal crash in central South Dakota has pleaded not guilty in federal court to involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities allege that a vehicle driven by 19-year-old Charg Hebb, of Lantry, collided head-on with another vehicle on a Ziebach County road last October. A passenger in Hebb's vehicle, Arleigh McLellan, was killed.

Hebb allegedly was driving on the wrong side of the road and speeding at the time.

Hebb faces up to eight years in prison if convicted. A trial date was not immediately set.
