Man charged in South Dakota reservation crash acquitted

PIERRE (AP) — A federal jury has acquitted a Texas man facing an involuntary manslaughter charge stemming from a crash on the Rosebud Indian Reservation last summer.

The office of U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says 29-year-old Daniel York, of Fort Worth, Texas, was acquitted Thursday.

Court records show prosecutors accused York of operating a vehicle in a "grossly negligent manner" and killing Quentin Bear Heels on July 12, 2015.
