Wisconsin Senator Sued Over Crash That Killed Child

A Wisconsin man who lost his 5-year-old daughter in a car accident involving Democratic Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley has filed a wrongful death suit against the state senator.

Brandon Fink claims Bewley “failed to control her vehicle” in the July incident, which occurred when she pulled out of a Lake Superior beach entrance and was hit by a vehicle driven by Alyssa Ortman, the mother of 5-year-old Khaleesi Fink.

Ortman’s car then spun around into oncoming traffic and was struck by another vehicle.

Ortman and Fink died in the crash.

Fink is seeking $10,000 in damages and a jury trial.

Bewley, who hasn’t been charged in the collision, has declined to comment on the suit.
