Man Pleads Guilty to Vehicular Manslaughter


(BLACKFOOT) – A Blackfoot man has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of vehicular manslaughter.

Kenny Carl Struhs, 42, crashed into a motorcycle last August, killing 36-year-old Brent Hansen of Blackfoot and injuring Hansen’s six-year-old daughter.

Struhs was also charged with leaving the scene of the accident, but that charge was dropped as part of his plea agreement.

In the last decade alone, Struhs has had several convictions for driving with a suspended license and drunk driving.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 12.
