  • A Minnesota man has been charged with a misdemeanor in connection to a fatal motorcycle and golf cart crash.
     
    KMSP-TV reports 39-year-old Korie Schiel of Chaska was charged with careless driving Monday in the death of Dr. Eric Lefebvre. Shiel was driving a golf cart on Highway 2 on July 19 when Lefebvre crashed into it. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.
     
    Prosecutors say Schiel didn't look behind him before turning into a driveway. Schiel tells police he only saw the motorcycle after he started turning and couldn't avoid the crash.
     
    Golf carts can't legally be operated on Minnesota roads.
     
    The charge carries a maximum sentence of 90 days and a $1,000 fine. Schiel won't be arrested or jailed.
     
    It wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.
