A Norfolk man was sentenced to 300 days in jail Wednesday for a crash that killed a motorcyclist from Syracuse last summer.
Edwin Belina Jr., 53, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide for the June 20 death of 41-year-old Kevin Davidson of Syracuse.
The Otoe County Sheriff's Office said Belina had been driving east on Nebraska 2 just after 11 a.m. and attempting to turn north into the Palmyra Sale Barn driveway when he struck Kevin Davidson, who was westbound on Nebraska 2.
Davidson died at the scene.
In an affidavit for Belina's arrest, investigators said Belina initially was adamant that the motorcycle had come out of nowhere and that he had the right of way.
Deputies noted there was so much clutter in the cab of his pickup they couldn't see anything through the passenger's side window, making Belina's view obstructed.
Otoe County Court Judge David Partsch sentenced Belina on Wednesday to 300 days in the county jail and fined him $25 for failure to yield to the right of way when turning left.
