Clark County Man to Appear in Court

(7/22/13) A Clark County man is due in court today, for allegedly causing a drunk driving crash that killed two passengers near Stevens Point.

A bond hearing is set for 22-year-old Timothy Saavedra of Loyal. Portage County authorities want prosecutors to file charges of causing deaths and injury by drunk driving. Authorities said Saavedra's pick-up truck slammed into a group of trees around bar-time on Saturday morning. Melissa Peterson and Stephanie Eberhardt, both 21 from Wisconsin Rapids, were killed. A 21-year-old Rudolph man was extricated from the truck. He was upgraded yesterday from serious-to-fair condition at a Marshfield hospital. Also today, Portage County and State Patrol investigators hope to get information from a black box in the vehicle – like the vehicle's speed, and how fast the brakes were applied when the truck's air bags were pushed out.
