Nebraska man arrested in crash that killed his brother

  • Updated

A Bridgeport man faces charges in a crash that killed his brother July 3.

Nebraska State Patrol troopers arrested Trey Brown, 27, on charges of motor vehicle homicide, driving under the influence and child endangerment in a crash that killed his brother, Joshua Brown, 21.

Nebraska State Patrol Trooper John Royle said Joshua Brown, driving a pickup, had been traveling toward Bridgeport on U.S. 26 when Trey Brown, driving a Pontiac G6, struck his brother’s vehicle from behind. Joshua Brown’s pickup rolled and he was ejected. He died at the scene, Royle said.

Trey Brown had a young child with him in his vehicle, leading to the child endangerment charge. Alcohol is being investigated as a factor, Royle said, and accident reconstruction experts have been involved in the investigation.

The crash occurred about three miles from Bridgeport.
