Drunk Driver in deadly motel crash charged.
ANTIGO, Wis. (AP) — A man who plowed his sports utility vehicle through a motel, killing a sleeping man, had a blood-alcohol level more than five times the legal limit to drive, authorities said.
Stephen VanVleit, 58, of Anti-go was charged with felony homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle, felony homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, and drunken driving, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday.
His blood-alcohol level at the time of the crash was 0.46%, the complaint said. The legal limit to drive in Wisconsin is 0.08%.
He was convicted of drunken driving in Arizona in 1998 and 2003, the complaint said. The most serious charge filed against him Thursday carries a sentence of up to 25 years in prison if he's convicted.
Jesus Manuel Quirios-Castillo, 26, died in the crash reported around dawn Wednesday at the Good Nite Inn.
VanVleit's GMC Yukon hit a truck in the motel parking lot, accelerated, crashed through a brick wall and the window of Room 28, ran over Quirios-Castillo and then went through another wall in the back of the room, investigators said. The SUV then struck a garage and an auto on a neighbor's property, they said.
VanVleit lived at the motel. Shortly after the crash, his mother told another resident that her son had been at her home at 4 a.m., was very intoxicated and refused to get a ride home from his uncle, the complaint said.
Castillo and his 24-year-old brother, Octavio, were staying in the room because they were scheduled to help dismantle a garden center, sheriff's investigators said.
Octavio Castillo suffered some injuries in the crash, the complaint said.
Motel manager Robert Lindemann said the surviving brother told a motel resident that he and his brother were to leave Saturday for Mexico to see their mother, whom they hadn't seen in six years.
VanVleit was in stable condition at Langlade Memorial Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said
