Child Killed In Suspected Drunk Driving Accident in Marshfield

A six-week-old baby was killed in a horse-drawn buggy that was rear-ended by a suspected drunk driver in Marshfield. It happened late yesterday afternoon, and a 49-year-old man from Loyal was due in Marathon County Circuit Court later today. He faces a possible charge of homicide by drunk driving. The victim’s name and other details of the crash were not immediately available. State court records showed that the suspect does not have a criminal record, and he has just one traffic conviction. That was for speeding earlier this year.
