Omaha, NE -  Today we learned why prosecutors say a man slammed his pickup truck into a light pole. 

Police say Nick Marescalco told them he wanted to kill himself, and that's why he drove into the pole near John Galt Blvd and Q while fighting with his girlfriend last month. 

The crash killed his girlfriend, Sharlee Arnett. 

Prosecutors charged Marescalco with felony manslaughter. He's being held on $50,000 bond.
