Late night multi-vehicle crash leads to charges

One of the cars was struck so hard, it’s difficult to tell what the make and model it is anymore.

A late-night crash that involved several parked vehicles in Grantsburg has led to multiple charges against the driver, Matthew D. Louis, 24, Grantsburg, who is accused of being under the influence when he crashed and then tried to flee the scene on foot. 

Louis was charged in Burnett County Circuit Court with at least four violations so far: Operating while intoxicated (first), Having open (alcohol) in the vehicle, operating at an unreasonable speed and losing control, and deviating from his lane of traffic.
