This lady risked and lost all these lives for texting while driving. Think the next you decide to do that. Especially with kids in the car.
A Wisconsin mom has been charged with three counts of homicide after allegedly causing a car crash that killed her daughter and two young nieces.
Kari J. Milberg, 34, is accused of being on Facebook while behind the wheel right before the crash in Prescott in December 2013.
Milberg’s daughter Lydia, 11, died instantly in the collision on Highway 35 near 468th Street, while her two five-year-old nieces, Clara Pavek and Laynie Jo Amos, later died in hospital.
Each of the nieces were the daughters of Milberg’s two sisters, meaning all three women lost a daughter in the tragedy.
Cellphone records have shown Milberg – who was left in a critical following the crash but has since recovered – was sending and receiving Facebook messages up to two minutes before the crash, according to The Star Tribune.
Following a lengthy investigation, she has been charged with three counts of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle and one count of reckless driving.
News of the horror smash has devastated those close to the family, with many praising the Milbergs as the ‘closest, most loving siblings’.
