Bond reduced for Blakesburg man charged with vehicular homicide


    Police allege that Sandifer was driving under the influence of meth at the time of the crash.

    A Blakesburg, Iowa, man accused of killing another man in a head-on crash last summer could be released on bond.

    Dennis Sandifer was arrested in November and charged with Vehicular Homicide in the death of Brandon Pruett, 29.

    At that time, his bond was set at $25,000 cash-only.

    Sandifer didn't post that amount and has been in custody since.

    This week, a judge agreed to let Sandifer post 10 percent of that $25,000 bond.

    If Sandifer posts that amount, he would be released pending his trial, provided he met other conditions.

    Those include, G-P-S monitoring and agreeing not to drive.

    On August 2, Sandifer was attempting to pass a semi in a no-passing zone on the Wapello/Monroe Road south of Blakesburg.

    That's when his vehicle struck another semi carrying hogs, traveling northbound, head-on.

    Pruett was a passenger in Sandifer's vehicle.

    Police allege that Sandifer was driving under the influence of meth at the time of the crash.

    KTVO checked with the Wapello County Jail on Tuesday. As of noon, Sandifer hadn't posted the new bond and was still in custody.
