Plymouth Woman Pleads In FDL County Fatal Accident
The 51-year-old Plymouth woman who caused a fatal accident in Fond du Lac County last August pled “no contest” Wednesday to a homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle charge. Laurie Garcia entered the plea during a hearing in Fond du Lac County Court. She will be sentenced on March 5th. Garcia was passing a line of cars on Highway 23 east of Fond du Lac on August 14th and 53-year-old Kathleen Fee of Fond du Lac who was in the oncoming lane went onto the shoulder of the road to avoid her. Fee lost control of her car and crossed over the centerline where a car driven by 41-year-old Mark Feldner of St. Cloud struck her vehicle causing it to flip around. Fee wasn’t wearing a seat belt, was thrown from her car and died at the scene. Feldner suffered non-life threatening injuries.
