Samuel Coppersmith had been convicted of Operating While Intoxicated back in 2017. Now, a little over three years later, he faces almost a dozen charges as a result of a July 19th accident on I-41 in Fond du Lac County. Coppersmith was the alleged driver of an SUV that rolled over numerous times, killing two passengers and injuring two more. Bond for Coppersmith was set at $150,000, with Coppersmith due back in court today, Friday, August 7. 


Killed in the crash was forty-nine-year-old Nana Yaw Yeboah and twenty two-year-old Malik Bridges. Two other passengers in the vehicle, 19-year-old Tiarah Stewart and 26-year-old Deandre Love, along with Coppersmith, were taken to ThedaCare Regional Medical Center in Neenah following the accident.
