Beaver Dam Man Sentenced in 2015 Fatal Crash

A Beaver Dam man will spend two years behind bars for striking and killing a teen with his car back in 2015. 23-year old Cody Buechel was also sentenced to four years on extended supervision. In September of 2015, six teens were walking near the shoulder of County Highway G in the Town of Lowell when Buechel crossed the centerline and hit Lucas Jaeger – who died from his injuries. Buechel says he was reaching for a soda at the time of the crash and also admitted to inhaling a chemical from a cleaning product prior to driving, although lab tests found no chemicals in his system.
