A 28 year-old Milwaukee woman is preparing for her June 1 trial, which comes after hitting and killing a motorcyclist in a motorcycle accident in June 2009.
The police investigation revealed that the woman failed to pay attention to the road during an argument with her husband. She struck the motorcycle, causing him to go over the concrete barrier and fall to the street below.
She was found speeding less than a month after her homicide charges. After failing to pay that fine, her driver’s license was suspended by the state. She was ticketed again for speeding and driving with a suspended license. During further investigations by media outlets, she was found still behind the wheel. Eventually, however, her license was reinstated, despite these violations.
She also has an active warrant in Minnesota for driving without a license in 2006.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has asked law-makers to impound cars until the driver can legally drive again.

Motorcycle accident fatalities in the U.S. dropped in the first nine months of 2009 after 10 years of steady increases, new studies show. The previous year held more than 5,200 fatalities, the highest ever. Numbers for 2009 indicate a 16 percent drop.
A spokesman for the Motorcycle Riders Association said motorcycle use is not lagging, because people want better gas mileage. The study, sponsored by the Governors Highway Safety Association, does not indicate a reason for this drop, but study facilitators said it was probably caused by the economy and people cutting back on recreational riding.
