Mother and two children hospitalized after Milwaukee car accident

A June 19 car accident caused by a suspected drunk driver resulted in a woman and her two children being hospitalized, a report of Journal Sentinel stated.

According to reports, at around 4:30 a.m., a wrong-way vehicle on I-43 at Fond du Lac Avenue caused the collision. The vehicle operated by Chaze Biami, 36, reportedly went into the wrong lane of the road and struck an oncoming vehicle containing a woman and two children. Rescue crews resuscitated the woman at the scene before she was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The two children, who were restrained by car seats, were treated for the substantial injuries they sustained. Biami, who was also injured in the incident, was later arrested after authorities found out his blood alcohol level was 0.14 percent and his driver’s license was revoked.

Bizarre accident kills Hollywood actor

A freak accident in Los Angeles recently killed the actor Anton Yelchin, a June 20 article of CNN stated.

At about 1:10 a.m., the 27-year-old “Star Trek” movie star was behind his parked vehicle when it unexpectedly began to roll backwards. The vehicle traveled down the driveway, crushing him. The actor succumbed to the injuries he sustained after he was pinned by his vehicle to a brick post.

4 seriously hurt in Marinette County crash

At least two adults and two children recently suffered injuries in Marinette County after the vehicle they were riding in was involved in a car accident, an article from ABC10 reported on March 28.

According to initial accident reports, one of the involved vehicles, occupied by Appleton resident David Deford and his family, was broadsided by a vehicle driven by Glenn Grenfell at about 3:45 p.m. on March 26 on Highway 141. Grenfell’s vehicle flipped onto its side after the accident. David, 23, his wife Crystal, 26, their daughter, and their niece all suffered injuries in the collision.

Authorities from the Marinette County Sheriff’s Department are continuing to investigate the incident.

 

Woman hospitalized after Fond du Lac accident

According to a February 21 article on fdlreporter.com, a woman recently had to undergo a surgical procedure in Milwaukee after she was involved in a two-vehicle accident in Fond du Lac.

Reports state that Laurel Shipton was involved in an accident that took place in the 200 block of North Main Street on February 20. Though several people were reportedly injured in the collision between two SUVs, Laurel remained in Froedtert Hospital for a surgical procedure, according to her daughter-in-law.

A spokeswoman at Froedtert Hospital reported that Laurel’s vital signs were “stable.” Responding Fond du Lac police officers had a difficult time establishing which driver or drivers were liable in the crash due to confusing information given by witnesses. Traffic flow along North Main Street was slowed down for an hour as crews cleared the roadway.

 

320K Toyota vehicles with faulty airbags recalled

Japanese auto manufacturer Toyota Motors is recalling approximately 320,000 truck and SUV models in the U.S. due to an error in the airbag program that can cause the safety features to launch unexpectedly when a crash has not occurred.

Reports said some previous models of Lexus, 4-Runners, Land Cruisers, Tundras and Sequoias may have airbags mounted in the roof that can suddenly activate. Toyota explained that the airbag systems of the affected vehicles were improperly programmed. If the roof-mounted airbags suddenly deploy without a crash, drivers and passengers occupying the front seats are at a high risk of sustaining injuries. Owners of the affected vehicles should expect a notification letter from Toyota including details for the free repair of their vehicles.

Fifteen drunk drivers arrested in Milwaukee over New Years

According to official reports, Milwaukee police made a concerted effort to crack down on drunk driving during the New Years holiday. As a result of their initiative, fifteen drivers were arrested over the course of the weekend for driving under the influence of alcohol.

Officers reportedly made the first DUI arrest at around 1:00 in the morning of January 1, 2016. The final arrest of the spree happened a little over five hours later at 7:17 a.m. that same morning. Since the beginning of the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office crack-down on December 31 through the end of the program on January 3, officers issued speeding tickets to 47 drivers and citations for license-related offenses to 19 individuals.

Milwaukee teacher busted for intoxicated driving

A teacher in Milwaukee was recently arrested by Town of Brookfield Police after she was suspected of driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol (OWI), news sources reported on December 9.

Officials said 29-year-old kindergarten teacher Danielle Cox was arrested on December 6 after refusing to take a breathalyzer test. Cox, who teaches at Gilbert Stuart Elementary, had previously been convicted of intoxicated driving offenses in three different incidents. In one of these prior convictions, three people suffered injuries in a car crash. Cox was reportedly under the influence of alcohol and marijuana at the time of the collision. The most recent charge against Cox is classified as a felony; however, she will not necessarily lose her job as she has not been convicted of a violent felony offense.
