SHAWANO, Wis. (AP) — A teen driver has been ordered to stand trial on charges resulting from a crash that killed three young passengers in Shawano County.
Eighteen-year-old Ryan Swadner is facing 11 charges, including eight felonies. Prosecutors say the Clintonville teen was under the influence of a controlled substance when he lost control of his vehicle in Belle Plaine and collided with an SUV in October 2014. Fifteen-year-old Paige Brunette, 17-year-old Cody Borsche and 18-year-old Tyler Welch were passengers in Swadner’s vehicle and died in the crash.
WLUK-TV reports Swadner’s attorney is questioning the toxicology report. Swadner was ordered to stand trial following a hearing in Shawano County Circuit Court on Monday.
