Eau Claire man gets plea deal for causing fatal chain reaction crash

EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - A plea deal would give an Eau Claire man 12 years in prison for causing a chain reaction drunk driving crash that killed a passenger in his van. 

36-year-old Travis Hazleton pleaded guilty this week to five felony charges, including homicide by OWI.

Both sides in the case agreed to recommend a dozen years in prison for Hazleton -- but the judge can still order something different when Hazleton is sentenced on January 6th. 

His conviction allows up to 40 years behind bars. 

26-year-old Jesse Schreiner of Eau Claire was killed in the crash, which occurred in July of last year. Hazleton and three others were hurt when his van started a pilot that involved seven vehicles.
