Montana trucker sentenced to 10 months for fatal accident

Fifty-one-year-old Montana resident Gary Lammert received a 10-month jail sentence after pleading guilty to a charge of causing injury by negligent driving in relation to a truck accident that killed a student-teacher in Dane County, Wisconsin in 2012, The Republic reported on May 6.

According to investigations made by the authorities, Lammert crashed into an automobile operated by 22-year-old Katie Binning, who was poised to turn into Wisconsin Heights High School, in 2012. Lammert rear-ended Binning’s vehicle, causing it to abruptly move forward where it was then hit by a van.

A criminal complaint showed that, according to witnesses, Lammert did not slow down or move to avoid hitting Binning’s car, which was in a stationary position.

Prosecutors and Lammert’s own defense agreed to two months of imprisonment for Lammert, but the judge handling Lammert’s case imposed a heftier jail term.
