An Elkhorn man named in an arrest warrant earlier this month for motor vehicle homicide turned himself in at the Cass County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday. Twenty-three-year-old Chase Lautenbach posted 10 percent of his $10,000 bond.
He was wanted in connection with the September 4, 2013 crash in Weeping Water that took the life of 44-year-old Keith Turner of Murray, Nebraska.
Authorities say Turner's vehicle was rear-ended by Lautenbach and pushed into the path of an oncoming truck. Cass County Attorney Nathan Cox told WOWT 6 News that careless driving led to the charge, saying Lautenbach should have slowed down for the turning car.
