Theresa Man Sentenced In Crash That Killed 21-Year Old Passenger
It was almost two years ago that a speeding vehicle drove through a red light in Fond du Lac, and crashed into an ambulance transporting a patient.
A 21-year old passenger in the speeding vehicle was ejected, and died as a result of the injuries received in the crash.
On Thursday (7/7/2022), Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric J. Toney announced that David G. Worley has been sentenced to 8 years of initial confinement and 7 years extended supervision from a drunk driving crash that killed his passenger.
On September 15, 2020 at approximately 4:25 a.m. Worley was driving northbound on Main St. and struck an ambulance transporting a patient. Worley was operating the vehicle that went through a red light at the busy intersection of Main St. and Johnson St. in the City of Fond du Lac, which ejected the 21 year old passenger of his vehicle resulting in his death. A blood test taken after the crash showed Worley had a prohibited blood alcohol concentration of .213.
District Attorney Toney stated “This is another tragic loss of life that should have never happened. It was caused by the defendant’s decision to drink and get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Families and friends of the victim have had their lives forever altered and this sentence will not undue the pain they have suffered and will continue to experience. I pray this tragedy acts as a warning to others and causes them to make the right decision to save a life by not drinking and driving.”
The state recommended 10-15 years of initial confinement and 10 years of extended supervision. The defendant faced a maximum possible sentence of 15 years of initial confinement and 10 years of extended supervision. The case was prosecuted by District Attorney Eric J. Toney and investigated by the Wisconsin State Patrol.
