State "Reviewing" Inmate Driver Selection Process



Nebraska's Department of Corrections says the inmate driving a state van in a fatal accident was on official business and has a driver's license.  Jeremy Dobbe was heading for the state office building to pick up other work release inmates and return them to the Lincoln correctional center at the end of their work shift.  Police say he was speeding, crossed the center line, and struck another car.  The other driver, 47-year old Joyce Meeks of Lincoln was killed.  Police say no charges have been filed pending the result of blood tests.  The Department of Corrections said in a prepared statement Thursday that it is reviewing the procedure by which inmates are selected for driving State vans.
