Lorine Lynette Kohm has been arrested and is facing several felonies and misdemeanors in connection with a crash near Sun Prairie last month.
She made her initial court appearance on Thursday, April 12th.
The crash happened on Friday, March 23rd, at about 9 p.m. near the intersection of Vaughn South Frontage Road and Cleveland Road.
Court documents allege that Kohm, driving a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, failed to stop at a stop sign and crashed into a another pickup truck, causing injuries to the two men in the other truck, Daniel Rodriguez and Michael Mayer.
“I thought I was going to die. I thought he was going to die. I have a girlfriend at home and the first thing I do is call her and I can barely see my phone because it was covered in so much blood,” said Mayer.
The court documents allege that Kohm was "highly intoxicated." Officers found a bottle of whiskey in the Tundra which was about 2/3 empty.
Kohm was taken to Benefis Health System, where she reportedly was "withdrawn and resistive," and refused to answer questions or give a blood sample. Kohm was then placed under arrest. As an MHP trooper was working to obtain a telephonic search warrant to procure a blood sample, Kohm left the hospital and escaped, leaving behind her purse and cell phone.
Kohm is charged with negligent vehicular assault and criminal endangerment, both felonies; and the following misdemeanors: obstructing a peace officer; escape; driving under the influence (3rd offense); driving with suspended/revoked license; on insurance (3rd offense); unlawful possession of open alcoholic container in motor vehicle on highway; stop sign violation; and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.
Prosecutors have requested that bond for Kohm be set at $30,000.
