Beatrice radio station KWBE (http://bit.ly/1deiXaE) says the grand jury convened Tuesday morning. State law says a grand jury must look into every case in which a person dies while being chased or arrested or dies in custody.
Beatrice police say they first received a call about a car weaving in and out of traffic around 1 p.m. on Aug. 24. The car took off when officers tried to pull it over.
The chase ended about five miles south of the city when the car plunged off a bridge and flipped onto its top, killing Jerry Wissler.
Wissler was alone in the car.
