12/12/17 – Charges were brought Monday against a Milwaukee man who is accused of injuring three minors during a crash in 2015 near Lomira. Tory Agnew is facing two felony counts of OWI Causing Injury with a Minor in the Vehicle and two other felony counts of Operating with a Restricted Controlled Substance. Multiple Dodge County Deputies were dispatched September 27 to the single vehicle accident on Interstate 41, just north of Highway 28. Agnew was operating the car when it entered the west side gravel shoulder, traveled across both lanes of traffic, hit an embankment that caused it to roll over, and came to rest on its wheels. Two children were ejected from the car while Agnew, a passenger, and a third child stayed in the vehicle. A 6-month-old sustained a scalp laceration and a 3-year-old suffered brain hemorrhaging as well as a fractured vertebra. A 1-year-old was also injured. In talking with investigators, law enforcement noticed an odor of marijuana coming from Agnew and that the car also smelt of the drug. The other passanger reportedly admitted to police that Agnew smoked marijuana before driving. A blood draw was taking which the analysis of allegedly tested positive for THC. The 32-year-old denied taking any drugs but did admit to being (quote), “around marijuana smoke earlier that day.” If convicted, Agnew faces at least 240 days and a maximum eight years behind bars. An initial appearance is scheduled for January 2.
