A 29-year-old woman has reportedly been charged with intoxicated driving causing death in connection with the fatal rear-end crash of a bicyclist in June.
Weidman resident Abigail Kay Hebert was formally charged with operating while intoxicated causing death, a 15-year felony, and moving violation causing death, a one-year misdemeanor, according to court records.
According to MLive.com, those charges relate to the June 27 death of 53-year-old Michael Seaman, who was struck by a passenger car around 8:25 p.m. on June 27, near the Mount Pleasant Country Club, according to Michigan State Police Mount Pleasant Post.
According to court records, police say Seaman was legally within the roadway and had the full right of way.
A blood test revealed her BAC was .09 percent, the affidavit states. The legal limit is .08 percent.
Why are We Reporting This Story on our Website?
Our website was created to provide important news and legal information to drunk driving accident and injury victims throughout the state of Michigan.
Quite often, insurance companies and their investigators meet with victims and their families shortly after an accident. They attempt to obtain evidence and information that will help them defend the case later and often get victims to sign statements that are against their own interest.
Our goal is to provide valuable information to victims and their family members to prevent them from being taken advantage of by the insurance companies and their attorneys. We offer free books to consumers so they can understand their legal rights, whether they choose to hire an attorney or handle the claim on their own.
We have given away many thousands of free legal guides over the last ten years for this purpose.
