Amery Man Sentenced to 1 Year in Fatal Motorcycle Crash

A northwest Wisconsin man has been sentenced to one year in jail for causing a drunk driving crash that killed a motorcyclist.
According to court documents, 39 year-old Christopher Lyman, of Amery, will spend a year in jail, 12 years on probation, and have his drivers license revoked for five years, after pleading guilty to drunken homicide. The fatal crash occurred August 9 of last year on highway 65 in the Polk County town of Garfield.

Authorities say Lyman’s vehicle struck a motorcycle driven by 24 year-old Jason O’Malley, of Minneapolis. The force of the impact sent the bike into 2 other vehicles. O’Malley was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Lyman drove away from the scene of the accident. Police stopped him a short time later, with a blood alcohol level of 0.14. Lyman was sentenced Monday, and ordered to stay sober and perform 1,000 hours of community service.
