Wis. man who crashed 4 times in 7 minutes issued 12 citations
Remember the Wisconsin man who managed to crash four times in seven minutes? All of that crashing led to a whole lot of citations. Twelve to be exact and the state patrol is still investigating for possible charges.
Kiriko Masasi, 23, crashed his 1996 Lincoln into a guardrail, a traffic standard, and five vehicles. In the final crash, he hit three cars head-on and suffered life-threatening injuries. All of the crashes happened in just four miles.
Masasi has now been upgraded to fair condition. One other woman was hospitalized in the crashes, but she has been released from the hospital.
The State Patrol is still reconstructing the crashes to piece together what happened last month. They are recommending a charge of causing injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle, but those charges haven't been filed.
His citations include reckless driving, hit and run, and failure to report crashes. The fines add up to more than $3,000.
