Man pleads guilty in crash that killed SMSU coach's baby

Author:

Dana Allen Schoen, 38, of Starbuck, has pleaded guilty to three counts of criminal vehicular operation stemming from a crash last summer with a vehicle carrying the family of Brad Bigler, Southwest Minnesota State University head men's basketball coach, the Marshall Independent reports.

Bigler's 5-month-old son Drake was killed in the July crash. Bigler, his wife Heather, and Heather's grandmother, Sharon Schuler, of Granite Falls, were injured.

Schoen's blood alcohol level was measured at .351, more than four times the legal limit, according to a criminal complaint. His truck had swerved into oncoming traffic and struck the vehicle, investigators said.

Schoen entered the plea as part of a deal with prosecutors, the Independent says. Sentencing was set for Jan. 25, the Associated Press reports.
