NASHUA - The trial of a man accused of killing a Nashua woman in a car crash has begun.
According to The Union Leader, Kyle Witty, 45, is facing manslaughter and negligent homicide charges after he allegedly ran a red light, collided with another car that led to the death of Elizabeth McQuinn, 60, last year.
The prosecution is charging Witty with manslaughter on the basis that they say he was acting recklessly when he ran the light and knew it was a danger.
Defense attorney Richard Guerriero argued Witty made a simple human error that led to a devastating death.
Witty was driving a 10-wheel, 1989 Freightliner dump truck when it collided with McQuinn's vehicle.
