Denny Wages's trial on reckless homicide charges continues

He's charged with killing three family members in a car accident in Southern Indiana.  But was it his fault, or a problem with the road?  That is the issue at the Denny Wages trial.

Denny Wages is on trial for reckless homicide.  This is the second trial for Wages.  The first one ended in a hung jury.

Police say in June 2004, Wages's pickup truck crossed the center line on U.S. 150 near Greenville, Indiana.  It hit a car head-on, killing 24-year-old Kimberly Littrell, 27-year-old Bobby Littrell, and their two-year-old daughter, Shelby.

The defense is trying to make the point that there is a blind spot in the road that made it difficult for the family's vehicle to be seen.  However, the prosecution pointed out that there is a double line on the road, meaning a no-passing zone.

The jury will have to decide if Wages's actions were criminal or simply negligent.  Drugs and alcohol are not a factor in this case.  Wages does not remember the crash.  He was seriously hurt.  Wages is not expected to take the stand.
