MONTEVIDEO — Charges of criminal vehicular homicide charges against Braxton Monte Anderson, 35, of Montevideo, appear headed to trial approximately one year after the fatal crash in which he was involved.
Following a pre-trial hearing on Wednesday, a trial is scheduled in district court starting Aug. 4 on four felony charges and a misdemeanor charge filed against Anderson.
The charges followed the Aug. 7, 2019, death of Brittany Lynn Schulz, 20, of Appleton. She was a passenger in a 1995 Saturn SL2 that turned left into the path of a northbound 2007 Cadillac Escalade on U.S. Highway 59 in Watson that night.
The criminal charges against Anderson allege he was the driver of the Saturn and had consumed alcohol and methamphetamine. He allegedly was making the left turn into the Goose Bar.
He faces two felony charges of criminal vehicular homicide for allegedly causing the crash and for having a controlled substance in his system at the time. He also faces two felony charges of criminal vehicular operation and a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree driving while impaired.
Emergency personnel responding to the accident scene removed Schulz from the vehicle. Ambulance personnel performed CPR while rushing her to a waiting helicopter but she was pronounced dead before reaching the helicopter, according to the criminal complaint.
