No Probation for Teen Driver in Fatal Accident

OMAHA AP) - A judge has decided to not place the teenage driver in a fatal accident that killed her 15-year-old friend on probation. Sarpy County Judge Lawrence Gendler said Friday that he won't require probation because the 16-year-old girl's family is taking appropriate steps to help her. She is in therapy and has taken defensive driving courses. The girl was driving a Jeep on Oct. 11 when it collided with a pickup truck. A passenger in the teen's car, 15-year-old Nathaniel LaFave, was killed. The girl and another passenger in the Jeep were critically injured but survived.
