Wisconsin car accidents: 2 women dead, man charged with deaths

Wisconsin has many beautiful roads that drivers use daily on which to travel. Whether for business or pleasure, the majority of drivers reach their destinations safely without incident. Unfortunately, car accidents occur each day as well, often causing damage to vehicles, injuries or even death. A recent accident involving an alleged drunk driver in Brown County claimed the life of two women.

A 44-year-old woman and her 18-year-old daughter were traveling on a road in Lawrence. Court documents state that a 46-year-old man was driving his vehicle when he crashed into the car occupied by the women. They were pronounced dead at the scene as a result of the impact.

Reports show that the man's preliminary breath test registered a .219, well above the state legal limit of .08. A judge determined that the evidence was sufficient for the case to move to trial. The man was charged with two counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. He posted the $50,000 bond in August and now awaits trial.

Losing a loved one is a tragic event for anyone. However, when deaths occur in car accidents caused by drunk drivers, the loss can feel even more devastating. Families that have experienced such a loss may decide to file a wrongful death lawsuit. While favorable results in a lawsuit will never bring back a lost loved one, a monetary award can help offset unexpected funeral costs and other expenses. A Wisconsin personal injury attorney can help families through the litigation process and work toward achieving a successful outcome in the case.
