10/6/17 – A Beaver Dam woman is heading to trial for being under the influence of heroin when she caused a crash that injured a child. Amber Stieglitz waived her right to a preliminary hearing yesterday on a felony charge of Operating While Intoxicated Causing Injury with a Minor in the Vehicle. The 28-year-old says she was coming home from a birthday party in August when another motorist swerved into her lane on County Road P in the Town of Fox Lake causing her to enter the ditch, strike a culvert and flip over. Investigators at the scene found no evidence to support her claims and an eyewitness said her vehicle veered off the roadway into a ditch. Her four-year-old daughter, who was not restrained, was taken to Beaver Dam Community Hospital before being transported to UW Hospital in Madison with contusions, cuts and a head injury. If convicted, Stieglitz faces up to two years in prison. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for October 25.
