Marengo man found guilty of DUI in fatal crash
WOODSTOCK – After about 3½ hours of deliberation Monday, a jury found a Marengo man guilty of driving drunk when he struck a 77-year-old truck driver who was walking across Route 20. The man died three weeks later.
Daniel K. Bending, 49, faces between three and 14 years in prison for his actions on April 18, 2008. However, if the judge finds that there were extraordinary circumstances, he could be sentenced to probation on the charge of aggravated driving under the influence.
Leonard Anderson had parked his tractor-trailer along Route 20 in Marengo to deal with a windshield wiper problem on the rainy evening. He got out of his truck and went to a nearby convenience store to use the phone and get coffee.
