Randall George Pleads Not Guilty To Aggravated Vehicular Homicide
A Casper man charged in a fatal crash has entered a plea in court.
Thirty-four year old Randall George has entered not guilty pleas to a charge of aggravated vehicular homicide and two charges of reckless endangering.
Investigators say in September, officers were called to a two-vehicle head-on crash on West 13th Street near the Wyoming Boulevard intersection.
Seventy-six year old Thomas Manning Junior was declared dead at the scene.
Several witnesses told police that a short time before the crash, George was driving westbound in the eastbound lane of West 13th.
The onboard airbag control module in George’s vehicle indicated he was going 72 miles-per-hour about 1.5 seconds before the crash and 59 miles per hour at the time of impact.
George admitted to paramedics that he had been drinking and tests showed that he had a blood-alcohol content of .20.
He is free on $20,000 bond awaiting trial and could face up to 20 years in prison on the vehicular homicide charge if convicted.
