The man accused of hitting and killing a firefighter will not face drunk driving charges, according to a report by our sister station WISC-TV.

Samuel Cremers is accused of killing Lake Mills Fire Captain Christopher Truman on New Year’s Eve. Truman had stopped on the side of the road to help another driver when Cremers allegedly hit him.

On Wednesday, court records show Cremers now faces charges for knowingly operating while suspended, causing death, which is a felony. No drunk driving charges are listed.

Cremers was facing a possible homicide by intoxicated use charge, but his lawyer said he took a breathalyzer test and blew a .079. The legal limit to drive is .08.
