CAR CRASH
BUTTE, Mont. -

A 67-year-old Butte man is charged with felony negligent homicide and negligent endangerment for a crash at a Butte intersection that killed a 74-year-old man.
    
The Montana Standard reports (http://bit.ly/VDpgaf ) James Robert "J.R." Hollingsworth was arrested Tuesday afternoon on a warrant that set his bond at $50,000.
    
Prosecutors allege Hollingsworth ran a red light on Aug. 23 and his pickup struck a car driven by Forrest Felton of Butte as he was making a turn. Felton died at the Butte hospital.
    
Court records say witnesses told police the driver of the pickup appeared to have been racing with another vehicle just before the collision.
