OMAHA, Neb. — An Omaha man who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for hitting and killing an Omaha street crew worker nearly a year ago has been sentenced to 14 days in jail and two years’ probation.
Alan Solarana was sentenced Thursday in Douglas County Court after pleading guilty in September to misdemeanor motor vehicle homicide in the Jan. 23 accident that killed 48-year-old Salvatore Fidone III, of Council Bluffs, Iowa.
Police have said Fidone was standing on the driver’s side of a city truck as he and others prepared to fill potholes when a car driven by Solarana drifted from a northbound lane and hit him.
Investigators said Solarana was not speeding on under the influence at the time of the crash.
