Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News

NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) A 23-year-old Norfolk man has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide for a collision last month on U.S. Highway 81 in northeast Nebraska’s Madison County.

Online court records say Brandon Plante also is charged with driving under the influence, second offense, and driving while his license was suspended. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could be contacted to comment on Plante’s behalf.        

Plante’s arraignment is set for July 21.

Authorities say Plante was driving north in a southbound highway lane on June 26 when he struck an oncoming vehicle driven by 32-year-old Tar Eh. Eh and a passenger in the vehicle, 32-year-old Yeh Htoo, were fatally injured. Both lived in Norfolk.
