A 74-year-old New London man has been charged with an OWI from an incident that occurred in November.
According to witnesses, Kenneth E. Gille struck a 19-month-old with his vehicle on Nov. 14 while driving northbound on Division St. The mother of the child reportedly had been adjusting a car seat in her vehicle when the child wondered into the roadway and was struck by the Gille’s van.
She then saw her child laying in the road and immediately carried the child to a nearby hospital only a couple blocks away, where the child was flown to ThedaCare Trauma Center in Neenah.
The criminal complaint states that blood tests show Gille had a blood-alcohol content of .134.
