Truck driver sentenced to jail after pleading guilty in fatal wreck

A semi truck operator in Wisconsin was immediately ordered to begin a 10-month jail term after pleading guilty to causing a fatal wreck near Wisconsin Heights High School in 2012, the State Journal on May 6 reported.

On May 5, Montana truck operator Gary Lammert was immediately sent to jail after pleading guilty to a “misdemeanor negligent driving” charge. Reports revealed that on May 30, 2012, Katie Binning’s vehicle was rear-ended by the truck driven by Lammert on Highway 14. Binning was killed after her vehicle shot off to the other side of the road and was struck by another vehicle. A criminal complaint stated that Lammert failed to reduce his speed and did not veer away from crashing into Binning’s vehicle. Though Binning’s family has been given $357,000 in financial compensation, a demand of $600,000 is still being processed.
