Trial Date Set For Watertown Reckless Driving Suspect

9/8/17 – A December 12 jury trial is now on the court calendar in Waukesha County for a Watertown woman accused of driving into a motorcycle head on, killing its driver and injuring another biker. Twenty-year-old Danielle Grooms is charged with felony counts of Homicide by Negligent Operation of a Vehicle and Reckless Driving Causing Great Bodily Harm. Prosecutors say Grooms was passing another car while driving uphill in a no passing zone, and her vehicle struck and killed Mark Galluzzo on his motorcycle — while Craig Knox fell and slid from his bike. It happened in August of last year in Waukesha County Village of Eagle. Police quoted Grooms as saying she was eating fast food while driving home from work, and she passed a car that was going slow and swerving while its driver appeared to be on a cellphone.
