On Monday, February 29 Aberdeen Patrol Officers were dispatched to a report of a two vehicle collision with injuries at Curtis and Boone. One of the vehicles had failed to stop at a stop sign, causing a collision with the second vehicle. The occupants of the vehicles were transported to the Community Hospital. The passenger of the car that failed to stop at the stop sign died later in the hospital, and the driver of the same vehicle was treated and released. The driver of the vehicle that was struck was uninjured.
Prosecutors allege that the man in the first vehicle that ran the stop sign was drunk, and the man is being charged with vehicular homicide. John Edward Weigant was allegedly drunk when he failed to yield at a stop sign at the intersection of Curtis Street and Boone Street. The passenger of the vehicle was unconscious when aid arrived, and the two were taken to the Community Hospital. Court documents allege that Weigant's breath smelled of alcohol. Bail has been set at $25,000 for Weigant.
