A 21-year-old Murray, Nebraska man is now facing charges in the August accident that killed four motorcyclists on I-29 in western Iowa.
A complaint and affidavit was filed in Harrison County District Court charging Andrew Schlichtemeier with four counts of vehicular homicide.
According to a complaint Schlichtemeier was operating a 2004 Chevy pickup north on I-29 at mile marker 95.5 near the Little Sioux exit in Harrison County. It was reported Schlichtemeier’s truck crossed the center line and collided head on with 4 motorcyclists. All four men died as a result of the injuries.
Lab tests showed Andrew had a blood alcohol concentration of .373 at the time of the collision. Medtox Labs analyzed Schlichtemeier’s blood specimen and found that THC (marijuana) was present.
