Man Sentenced For Deadly Crash Into Waterloo House
A Waterloo man will spend up to 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to vehicular homicide in Black Hawk County District Court on Thursday (May 5, 2016).
Weadeh Tucker, 26, admitted to drinking and blacking out while behind the wheel on June 29, 2015, the night his sport utility vehicle hit a house in Waterloo. Tucker's SUV left Dysart Road (County Road V-37) and crashed into the back of Milo "Mike" VanSchoyck's home on Summerland Dr.
VanSchoyck, 84, was sleeping in his bed when the SUV broke through the bedroom wall. VanSchoyck suffered a head injury and died a few days after the crash at a hospital.
Authorities arrested Tucker on an unrelated charge immediately after the accident. He was formally charged with vehicular homicide in October.
At Thursday's sentencing, Tucker was also ordered to pay $150,000 restitution.
