CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Probable cause has been determined in the case of an Altoona man accused of crashing into a pedestrian on a Chippewa County road.
The crash happened last September at the intersection of State Highway 64 and 190th Avenue. That’s just north of the city of Bloomer.
Authorities allege 25-year-old Trevor Plemon was driving a company vehicle, on Highway 64, when it struck 63-year-old Christine Pruecher. She later died in the hospital.
Two charges of vehicular homicide while using a controlled substance are among the counts against Plemon.
He’s free on a 1-thousand-dollar cash bond. An arraignment is set for April 12th.
