MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A truck driver from Montana is free on a signature bond, after being charged with negligent homicide in a fatal traffic crash in Dane County.

50-year-old Gary Lammert of Anaconda Montana is accused of causing a chain reaction crash in May of 2012 in front of Wisconsin Heights High School.

The crash killed Katie Binning, a student art teacher who had recently graduated from UW-Platteville.

Authorities said Binning slowed down to turn into the high school parking lot, when was hit by Lammert's truck and pushed into the other lane where a van struck it. Binning died at the scene.

The status of Lammert's case will be reviewed at a proceeding on August 18th in Madison.
