Negligent Wisconsin driver avoids imprisonment after deadly crash

The reckless driver who killed a woman in an accident in Wisconsin last year recently avoided jail term given that he follows the conditions of his sentence, Crookston Times stated on May 8.

Instead of going to jail, 41-year-old Timothy Peterson was sentenced on May 6 to a five year agreement as endorsed by the family of the victim. In the agreement, Peterson will complete 200 hours of community service, 100 of which will be spent informing teenage drivers about the dangers of inattentive driving, particularly texting while driving. On January 2013, Peterson fatally struck pedestrian Cecelia Killian, 86, who was crossing the street. He had been using his phone and not paying attention to the road. Peterson was also ordered to maintain Cecelia’s grave and pay her family $10,188 for funeral expenses.
