Man charged in deadly crash in Fort Dodge


FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) -- The driver of a car that killed a Fort Dodge woman last year has been charged with vehicular homicide.

Abram Urbina-Galvan, of Fort Dodge, is accused in the death of his passenger, Jessica Nickless, last November.

Authorities say Urbina-Galvan was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his pickup truck, which went off a bridge and down an embankment.

Nickless died when she was thrown from the truck.

Urbina-Galvan and two other passengers were injured.

Authorities say Urbina-Galvan had been drinking before the crash.
