Judge dismisses vehicular homicide charge in 2009 accident

A Douglas County judge has dropped charges against a man accused of killing a man with his car.

Michael Peng, 23, was charged with vehicular homicide in the April 7 accident in the 200 block of Michigan.

Wally May, 80, was killed as he walked on the sidewalk about 7:40 a.m. at 255 N. Michigan.

Prosecutors said Peng failed to clear his windshield from a heavy frost and charged him with vehicular homicide. District Judge Sally Pokorny determined there wasn’t enough evidence for a jury to consider the case.
