Driver in fatal crash has deadly record

Posted:

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) -- Prosecutors say the woman charged in a fatal drunken driving crash in central Wisconsin has a record of another deadly driving incident in Illinois.

A criminal complaint filed in Portage County charges 23-year-old Hanna Schacht with homicide by drunken driving in the death of 51-year-old Daniel Wetzel, of Lanark. Sheriff's officials say Wetzel was a passenger in a vehicle driven by his son that pulled out of a driveway east of Stevens Point and was struck by Schacht's vehicle Sunday morning. Sheriff's officials say Schacht had a preliminary blood alcohol content of 0.15 after the crash.

Stevens Point Journal Media reports a Portage County prosecutor says Schacht served jail time after a man fell from the roof of a vehicle she was driving in Woodstock, Ill., last year and died.
