Teen arrested for his role in fatal accident
BY CORY GOLDEN Lincoln Journal Star

Police arrested a 17-year-old Lincoln boy Thursday on suspicion of misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide for his part in a two-car accident that caused injuries a pathologist ruled later killed a 66-year-old man.

According to police, on Nov. 30, 2001, just after 11 a.m., Carl A. Thomas was driving a Nissan Sentra southbound on South 37th Street at Sheridan Boulevard when he collided with an eastbound Ford Escort driven by Joseph E. Brown.

Thomas, of 5221 S. 49th St., was originally cited on suspicion of failure to yield.

Brown complained to rescuers of chest pain at the scene. He was taken by ambulance to BryanLGH Medical Center East, where he died Dec. 4.

In an autopsy report dated Jan. 22, a pathologist concluded Brown died of severe blunt force trauma to his torso, Lancaster County Attorney Gary Lacey said.

Thomas now faces up to a year in jail and up to a $1,000 fine if convicted.

A retired employee of the ADM soybean processing plant in Lincoln, Brown spent 30 years serving the U.S. Army National Guard and Naval Reserves and 13 years as a guidance worker at the Nebraska State Penitentiary.

He was survived by his wife, Mary, sons Mitchell and Richard, adopted son, Tony, three grandchildren, siblings and extended family.
