The case of a fatal car accident in July has recently reached a conclusion that resulted in the conviction and sentencing of a Green Bay man. The incident occurred on Main Street in Green Bay. An 18-year-old man caused a car accident that resulted in the wrongful death of a 52-year-old man. Rather than stop and render aid, the 18-year-old driver fled the scene. His brother drove him to Milwaukee, and he then traveled to Mexico. The man later returned to the area, and police arrested him after discovering him hiding in a Howard area home. He was convicted for the hit-and-run accident that resulted in the death of an innocent man. His punishment includes a sentence of three and a half years imprisonment followed by an additional three and half years of extended supervision. In addition, he was ordered to pay restitution for the costs of the victim's funeral. The family of the deceased may also choose to file a wrongful death suit against him.
