Kansas man gets 6-plus years in fatal ATV crash


HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A south-central Kansas man has been sentenced to more than six years in prison after being convicted of charges stemming from a fatal collision.

The Hutchinson News reports that 32-year-old Nathan Clark pleaded guilty earlier to involuntary manslaughter in the 2014 Reno County crash that killed 48-year-old Allen Hammeren of Williston, North Dakota.

Reno County District Judge Trish Rose followed a plea agreement in sentencing Clark on Friday to six years and eight months in prison. The judge also ordered Clark to pay about $15,000 in restitution to the victim’s family.

Authorities said the crash occurred on a county road in October 2014 when the vehicle Clark was in struck the ATV Hammeren had been driving. Hammeren, who had been deer hunting, sustained a severe head injury.
