Man Sentenced For Fatal 2012 Crash Near Columbus


A 30-year-old man has been given four years of probation and 128 days in jail for causing a fatal crash north of Columbus last year.

Brian Browning, formerly of Humphrey, was sentenced last week. Browning had pleaded guilty in February to vehicular homicide.

According to authorities Browning was speeding and driving recklessly on July 21 of last year when he lost control of his pickup and it rolled. Browning, Toni Krumland and another passenger were ejected.

20-year-old Krumland, of Columbus, died days later after being flown to an Omaha hospital for treatment.

The judge said Browning must serve 100 days in jail beginning immediately and then serve seven days a year while on probation.

That jail time is to begin on July 21, the date of the crash, in each of his four years of probation.
