A truck driver from Eagle is facing manslaughter charges in the deaths of family members from Hastings. The Cassgram reports 53-year-old Kenneth Johnson was charged Friday with two counts of manslaughter in Clay County. Another member of the Gary Isom family has also died and charges are now pending in that death.
The Isom family was traveling on Highway 6 when the collision with the semitrailer hauling sand occurred on Thursday last week. The Clay County sheriff said the semi failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection with Highway 14.
