Woman found guilty in crash that killed National Guard member from Lincoln

A woman has been found guilty of misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide for a crash that killed a 22-year-old Lincoln man last July. 

Court records show Allie Davis, 22, was found guilty of the charge Friday. 

Prosecutors said Davis unintentionally caused the death of 22-year-old Triston Grieser when she collided with his motorcycle near 14th and Old Cheney on July 31. They say Davis failed to yield and was driving in a negligent or careless manner. 

An accident report said Davis, who was not injured, told police she slowed down as she approached the yield sign but didn’t see any oncoming traffic as she entered the intersection. A witness, who was driving behind Davis told police she saw the headlights of Grieser’s motorcycle as they were approaching the intersection, according to the report. Another witness told police she didn’t think Davis was going to stop as she approached the intersection, and that the two vehicles were going to collide.

Family and friends remembered Greiser for his service in Nebraska National Guard and for his love of motorcycles. 
A judge set sentencing for Davis on April 3.
