Wisconsin man arrested for fifth OWI after accident

For those who have been involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, the consequences can be severe, if not fatal. Many are left with a feeling of bitterness to think that someone behaved in such a careless manner and put the lives of those around him or her in danger.

A Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin man who caused a car accident while under the influence of alcohol faced charges of OWI recently. The 50-year-old man was traveling on N. Vincent Road when he failed to stop at a stop sign located at E. State Road 59. He went over an embankment and crashed into three parked RV trailers at the bottom.

The man had to be removed from the floorboard on the passenger side of the vehicle before being taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life threatening. Authorities arrested the man after he told them that he had been drinking before the accident. He was charged w ith OWI, not wearing a seatbelt, and failure to stop at a stop sign.

He recently appeared in court where he was convicted of OWI. Because it was his fifth drunk driving arrest, he was ordered to spend 18 months behind bars.

The owners of the RV trailers that were damaged as a result of this man's careless actions may wish to consult with an attorney. A lawyer can review their case and work toward helping them get the compensation to which they are entitled for the damages done to their property.
