Authorities confirm the driver responsible for the death of a Lake Mills firefighter last week was under the legal limit for blood alcohol content at the time. 

Twenty-eight-year-old Samuel Cremers was suspected of driving drunk when he hit and killed firefighter Christopher Truman.  Cremers admitted he drank two beers before the accident, but a preliminary test showed his blood alcohol content was point-zero-7-9.  Cremers' attorneys blame poor weather conditions for the accident.  He returns to court March 7th.
