A Norfolk man has been given 30 months in prison for the crash death of a passenger in his vehicle.

Stanton County District Court records say 25-year-old Tucker Lanz was sentenced Thursday. He'd pleaded no contest to felony vehicular homicide after making a deal with prosecutors.

The crash occurred the night of May 12 last year, about 6 miles east of Stanton. Authorities say Lanz was driving east when his vehicle crossed into a ditch on the north side of the road, hit a power pole and rolled.

Lanz was injured, and his passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified as Hunter Hetzler, who lived in Stanton.
