St. Francis man to go to trial after killing friend in drunk driving accident

St. Francis resident Ihor Sahan may be charged with homicide for accidentally killing his 17-year-old friend and passenger Ryan Petri in a drunk driving accident in November 2012. He was unable to reach a plea deal Thursday, May 16, and the case will now go to trial.

According to police investigators, Sahan had been drunk while he was operating the vehicle that slammed into a Waukesha County Sheriff’s squad car on I-94 near Sunnyslope. Deputy Inspector James Gunn said the vehicle was on fire after the collision and the squad car damaged.

Deputies Bryan Skaar and Patrick Sykes were able to pull both young men from the vehicle; however, Petri, succumbed to his injuries later when he died in the hospital some time after the incident took place.

Unfortunately, drunk drivers act recklessly endangering or even taking the lives of other unsuspecting drivers. If you find yourself or your loved one in such a situation, don’t hesitate to call our lawyers from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874.
