Court-Martial for Airman Driver in Fatal Crash
A Vandenberg Air Force Base airman is facing a court-martial in connection with a fatal crash that happened last summer. According to Santa Barbara’s Noozhawk, Airman 1st Class D. Randall’s court-martial is scheduled for June 1, 2015. The collision in question happened near Santa Lucia on Highway 1 last July. The crash involved two cars, and took the life of 21-year-old Nicholas DiBona and sent 22-year-old John C. Rivera to the hospital.
Randall is facing charges for negligent homicide, reckless driving causing no injuries and offences under the Assimilated Crimes Act. The other driver involved, Senior Airman Donald Cox is also facing a court-martial in June. At this time, it is believed that the crash was a result of a speed contest or race between the two drivers.
