FDL Woman Pleads To Vehicular Homicide Charge

A 45-year-old Fond du Lac woman has pled “no contest” to a vehicular homicide charge in Waupaca County. Kristin Carlson entered the plea Tuesday. The charge stemmed from an incident in July of 2013 when Carlson hit 81-year-old Fred Lick as he was crossing a road to get his mail. It’s estimated she was driving up to 30 miles an hour over the speed limit. She also received a text message less than 30 seconds before she called 9-1-1.  A sentencing hearing is scheduled for September 26th.
