Boy, 14, Accused In Fatal Crash
Investigators Say He Took Mother's Car; Girl Killed

Wisconsin State Journal :: LOCAL/WISCONSIN :: C1
Wednesday, November 26, 2003
Tori Rosin and Paul Scharf Portage Daily Register
Columbus police Tuesday night caught a 14-year-old Columbus boy who is accused of taking the keys to his mother's car Monday night and crashing it, killing a 16-year-old girl (Stephanie Wake) and injuring her two sisters.
The boy walked away Tuesday afternoon from a juvenile facility in Beaver Dam. He was taken there while Columbia County sheriff's deputies were deciding whether to recommend charges against him.

Investigators said the boy lost control of a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am, which rolled several times around 9 p.m. Monday near Columbus.

Stephanie Wake, 16, of Columbus died at the crash scene. Heather Wake, 15, was taken to UW Hospital with internal injuries, and Brittany Wake, 13, was taken to Columbus Community Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the Sheriff's Department said.

The boy was taken to Charlton House, a nonsecured, halfway home for teenagers run by Lutheran Social Services, after his release from Columbus Community Hospital early Tuesday.

Acting on a tip, police found the boy near a convenience store at about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday. The boy fled, but police found him in a vacant home being remodeled.

The boy, who reportedly did not have a coat and was wet and muddy, was taken to the Columbus Community Hospital. Police planned to turn him over to the custody of the Columbia County Human Services Department.

Before leaving the juvenile facility, the boy was scheduled to be in court today for a detention hearing, which will determine where he will live during the investigation and court proceedings.

Columbia County Assistant District Attorney Steve Sarbacker said Tuesday afternoon the boy may face an auto theft charge.

The accident was still under investigation, Columbia County Sheriff's Lt. Terry Seely said.

The boy took the keys to his mother's vehicle while she was sleeping, Seely said. The accident occurred on River Road, which is one mile south of highways 16 and 60 in the town of Columbus.

The car's three passengers were ejected when the vehicle lost control and rolled over multiple times, police said.

"We don't know who was wearing seat belts, but the driver was not," Seely said.
