WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – A Forsyth County jury Wednesday overturned the December conviction of a Charlotte truck driver in connection with a crash that killed a Kernersville man last May.
Hiep Tan Truong, 45, of Charlotte had been on trial last week on a charge of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle in Forsyth Superior Court.
A jury found him not guilty of that charge Wednesday after a trial over two days.
Truong was initially convicted of the charge in Forsyth District Court in December. Judge Victoria Roemer sentenced him to 75 days in jail, but Truong appealed to Forsyth Superior Court, setting in motion the jury trial last week.
The sentence was put on hold pending Truong’s appeal.
