Beaver Dam Man Charged For Fatal Sheboygan County Accident

A 57-year-old Beaver Dam man is facing drunken driving homicide charges for a fatal accident in Sheboygan County that occurred a year ago this month.  John Hammen made his initial court appearance this week on charges stemming from an accident on County SS. Hammen’s Dodge Viper went off the road and into a grove of trees. He and a 61-year-old Beaver Dam man who was his passenger were flown to Froedtert Hospital where the passenger died. Investigators determined the car had been going 108 miles an hour when Hammen lost control of it. He was released on a $25,000 signature bond and has a preliminary hearing next Wednesday.
