Man has bond hearing for allegedly causing double fatal OWI crash

STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - A Clark County man is due in court Monday, for allegedly causing a drunk driving crash that killed two passengers near Stevens Point.

A bond hearing is set for 22-year-old Timothy Saavedra of Loyal.

Portage County authorities want prosecutors to file charges of causing deaths and injury by drunk driving. Authorities said Saavedra’s pickup truck slammed into a group of trees around bar time on Saturday morning.

Melissa Peterson and Stephanie Eberhardt, both 21 from Wisconsin Rapids, were killed.

A 21-year-old Rudolph man was extricated from the truck. He was upgraded Sunday from serious to fair condition at a Marshfield hospital.

Also Monday, Portage County and State Patrol investigators hope to get information from a black box in the vehicle – like the vehicle’s speed, and how fast the brakes were applied when the truck’s air bags were pushed out.
