A Waterloo man is facing charges following a weekend traffic crash that killed a teenager. The crash happened at 1:20 Sunday morning at the intersection of Sergeant Road and University Avenue in Waterloo. Police say a van, driven by 37-year-old Jeffery Heidemann, collided with an SUV driven by 18-year-old Karlee Nagel.
Negel was pronounced dead at a hospital. Heidemann allegedly fled the scene on foot before he was found at a nearby residence. He’s currently charged with drunken driving and leaving the scene of an accident. Friends of Nagel, who was a student at Waterloo West High School, gathered for a vigil at the crash site Sunday night.
