A Bosnian man brought back to this country to face charges of causing a fatal crash in Waterloo will go on trial next week. Trial’s set to begin Tuesday in Black Hawk County for Damir Mekic. He’s charged with vehicular homicide in the death of Traer teenager Keely Lyons on her prom night two years ago. Mekic was living in Minnesota and visiting friends in the Waterloo area in April 2003, when police say he ran a stoplight and hit a car carrying Lyons and three of her classmates from North Tama High School. Mekic fled the U.S. after the accident, but was later caught in Serbia. He was returned to Iowa last weekend.
