JUST IN: Dem Lawmaker Involved In Crash That Killed Mother And Daughter

(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – On Friday, Wisconsin Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley was involved in a tragic three-car crash that took the lives of a young mother from Pennsylvania and her 5-year-old daughter, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Democratic lawmaker was in the middle of a phone interview with a reporting intern from the Journal Sentinel at the time of the crash in the northern Wisconsin city of Ashland.

During the interview, Bewley told the reporter, Ben Baker, that she had just had cataract eye surgery the day before. Further into the interview, the call went silent.

“When Baker asked Bewley if she was still on the line, she sounded concerned,” the report said. “When Baker asked if she was OK, she said, ‘Yeah, I’m OK. This is not a good accident.’”

According to Ashland Police, Bewley, 70-years-old, pulled out of a Lake Superior beach entrance into the path of a car driven by 27-year-old Alyssa Ortman.

After Ortman’s car hit Bewley’s it spun across Highway 2 and was struck by another vehicle driven by Jodi Munson, 45, according to reports.

Ortman’s 5-year-old daughter, Khaleesi Fink, was pronounced dead at the scene and Ortman was taken to a nearby hospital where she later died.

Ashland Police Chief Bill Hagstrom reported that Bewley was not taken to the hospital and the Daily Press report on Tuesday said police were not recommending charges against her.

Bewley’s office released a statement regarding the accident on Monday, saying, “Senator Bewley was involved in a three-vehicle accident in Ashland, Wisconsin on Friday, July 22nd,” adding, “Tragically, two people lost their lives.

“This is a heartbreaking event for the community. Our thoughts and prayers are focused on the individuals involved, their families and their loved ones.

“A police investigation is ongoing. Out of respect for that investigation and the privacy of all the families involved, our office will be withholding further comment at this time.”

The Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday that Ortman’s mother, Ginger Urbanik, had previously lost her only son to a crash involving a drunk driver less than two years ago. Now she has lost her only daughter and her granddaughter.

This is truly a most tragic incident.

“My grandbaby, who was just starting out, just getting ready to start kindergarten — her life’s gone,” Urbanik told the outlet. “And my daughter, who had so much to look forward to, and so much that she wanted to do good in the world, and all of her plans … and now both of our children, within a matter of years, are gone.”

“Our only two children … we’re going to suffer for the rest of our lives,” she said.

Lift this grieving mother up in prayer. You can’t possibly fathom the pain and heartache she is feeling right now.

  1. Things are starting to catch up with those demowits and their party
    Call it karma or whatever……….
    It is coming back to bite!!!

  2. I don’t give a rat’s rectum what the idiots politics are. If she was preoccupied with a phone interview and blatantly pulled out in front of this poor unfortunate mother and daughter and caused the accident, the police better do their jobs. This bull crap of being on the phone and driving, causes more accidents than alcohol does. It’s about time these self-serving assholes pay the price for their inconsiderate actions.
    Yes, praying for the victims is a given, but praying for justice for those victims is also necessary. If the police don’t do their jobs, they’re just as responsible for the death and destruction these no minds cause because they’re in too much of a hurry to pull off the road. The fact that Bewley had cataract surgery is even more disgusting due to the fact she was driving with one eye patched. That’s at best criminal negligence.

  3. She’s a privileged democrat, she’ll
    get a statue erected to her and probably a cash reward considering it was a white female
    and child who she killed. Just like
    the Babbitt women in the Jan. 6th
    murder by the coward cop Byrd.
    These scumbag need to rot in
    hell and that’s exactly where their
    going. Burn baby burn.

  4. This is certainly a tragic incident, Let us hope for once that politics can remain out of this conversation and send our prayers out to all concerned. Let the police do their job unhindered by the political atmosphere in our country at present.
