Kansas Man Charged in April Crash That Killed Wood River Man


A Kansas man has been arrested in connection with a fatal crash that occurred around Hastings in April.

Victor Allende, 46, of South Bend, Kan., was arrested Sunday in Kansas and charged with manslaughter.

Court records say Allende was heading eastbound on U.S. Highway 6 east of Hastings on April 24. He was following behind a truck too closely and slammed into the truck when it stopped at a train crossing.

The truck Allende ran into was pushed in the way of the pickup driven by 52-year-old Neal Sahling. Sahling, who is from Wood River, was killed in the incident.
