Felony charge in car accident that injured Wisconsin broadcaster

A 44-year-old man is facing a felony charge for a November car collision that left a Milwaukee, Wisconsin, sports broadcaster injured. Formal charges include causing injury while driving under the influence of alcohol and a controlled substance.

The victim, Steve "The Homer" True suffered a serious injury to the head because of the drunk driving accident but was healthy enough to be discharged from the hospital a few days later. A week after his release, True returned to his job as a talk show host on WAUK, Milwaukee's ESPN broadcast station. For over 20 years, True has also been responsible for calling the play-by-play broadcasts for Marquette University basketball games.

According to a criminal complaint, the suspect allegedly made a confession detailing his illegal operation of an automobile while under the influence of alcohol. Local prosecutors have also released a statement stating that the suspect had cocaine in his blood system during the auto accident. The accident investigation has allegedly revealed the accident occurred when he ran a red light, which caused his motor vehicle to collide with the car operated by True.

People in this country are all too familiar with the direct and indirect consequences of drunk driving accidents, as well as the pain and suffering they often cause. Victims of car accidents caused by a negligent driver or by a person under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances may seek compensation for a variety of claims from the negligent driver. Those claims may include those for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and other economic and non-economic damages.

Residents of Wisconsin and the rest of the country should be able to operate motor vehicles as they conduct their daily affairs without risk of serious injury or death due to impaired or intoxicated drivers.
