Owatonna, MN (KROC-AM News) - A Dodge Center man who was recently sentenced for causing a deadly traffic wreck has pleaded guilty to another speeding ticket that was issued while his case was pending.

The plea was entered last week by 25-year-old Tanner Kruckeberg.

He was clocked at 41 mph in a 30 mph zone in Steele County on July 11th. That was about two months before he pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide for causing a 2018 crash that claimed the lives of a Blooming Prairie teacher and her young daughter. Investigators said Kruckeberg was using his cellphone at the time.

Kruckeberg has a history of driving offenses dating back to his teens - including one when an officer saw him either texting or looking at his cellphone. That was in 2014 while Kruckeberg was driving in Rochester.

He now has ten speeding convictions on his record. Last week’s conviction resulted in fines and fees of $131.
