Kewaskum Woman Charged In Fatal FDL County Accident

Bond was set at $2,000 cash for a 25-year-old Kewaskum woman involved in a fatal traffic crash last June in Fond du Lac County. Heather Cleveland made her initial appearance in court Wednesday on a homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle charge. A preliminary hearing is set for April 30th. Cleveland was heading west last June 25th on Highway 23 in her SUV when she ran into the back of a pickup truck that was stopped to make a left turn onto Willow Road. The impact caused the pickup to travel into the eastbound lane and it collided head on with a vehicle driven by 63-year-old Linda Trotter of Ripon. Trotter died at the scene. Cleveland suffered some broken bones in the accident. The pickup driver was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
