Prison Van Crash Prompts Lawsuit

Family members are suing the state claiming negligence in connection with a deadly crash involving a prison inmate.

Joyce Meeks, of Lincoln, died in the crash last June. A speeding prison van slammed into her vehicle.

The other driver, Jeremy Dobbe, was an inmate on work release serving a five-to-seven- year sentence for drug dealing.

He has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter.
