Milwaukee Man Appears On Dodge County OWI Injury Charge

(Lomira) A Milwaukee man accused of injuring three minors during a 2015 crash near Lomira made his initial appearance in Dodge County court Wednesday. Tory Agnew is facing two felony counts of Operating While Intoxicated Causing Injury with a Minor in the Vehicle along with felony Operating with a Restricted Controlled Substance. Multiple Dodge County deputies were dispatched to a single vehicle accident on Interstate 41. Agnew’s vehicle reportedly entered the west gravel shoulder, traveled across both lanes of traffic, hit an embankment and rolled over, coming to rest on its wheels. Two children were ejected.  A six-month-old sustained a scalp laceration and a three-year-old suffered brain hemorrhaging as well as a fractured vertebra. A one-year-old was also injured. In talking with investigators, law enforcement noticed an odor of marijuana coming from Agnew and said that the car also smelled of the drug. The other passanger reportedly admitted to police that Agnew smoked marijuana before driving. A blood draw was taken and he 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 of eight years behind bars. A signature bond was set at $1000 yesterday and a judge will decide next Thursday if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
