Wisconsin veteran charged with drunk driving

A 32 year-old Iraq veteran has been charged with intoxicated vehicular homicide after he crashed into a disabled car in the median of Interstate 39/90/94. The crash killed three University of Minnesota students.

The students had pulled into the emergency lane after their tire blew out. One survivor said he saw a vehicle approaching them at high speeds. He tried to warn his friends, but it was too late. The war veteran blew a 0.158 on a Breathalyzer test, nearly twice the legal limit.

Friends of the driver say he suffers from severe post-dramatic stress disorder and sometimes used alcohol to cope. In 2005, shortly after he returned from Iraq, he was issued a citation for his first OWI offense.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the young victims of this tragic accident.
