Posted under Car Accidents

Fifty-one-year-old Deer Lodge, Montana truck driver Gary Lammert plead guilty to misdemeanor negligent driving in relation to a 2012 fatal crash, resulting in a 10 month jail sentence, the Montana Standard reported on May 7.

On May 30, 2012, Lammert bumped into the rear of Katie Binning’s vehicle, a student teacher for art. The accident occurred in front of Wisconsin Heights High School. According to a criminal complaint, Binning was on Highway 14, waiting to turn into the high school’s parking lot, when the semi-trailer Lammert was operating crashed into the rear of Binning’s car, forcing it to cross the path of an oncoming van.

In addition to jail time, Lammert paid $357,000 in wrongful death damages.
