March 16, 2013 marks the tragic day that 19-year-old Emma Redinger lost her life as the result of a traffic accident.
Now the driver of the vehicle, 19-year-old Casey Lake of Grant, is charged with Vehicular Homicide.
The two teens were traveling on Interstate 80, when Lake lost control of the vehicle which rolled several times.
Redinger, the sole passenger in the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Lake was also seriously injured.
The Nebraska State Patrol report states that Redinger was wearing her seatbelt, but it was not being worn properly. The report says Lake was not wearing her seatbelt.
Lake’s bail was set at ten percent of $50,000. She posted bond and was released from custody.
