Teen accused in fatal crash arrested again

Krystal Hart, the 17-year-old charged with killing a man in a November drunken-driving crash, was jailed this week after she admitted to police she was at another drinking party.

The Walworth County Sheriff's Department was investigating a possible underage drinking party Sept. 20 when deputies discovered Hart.

She is scheduled to appear in Walworth County Circuit Court Tuesday (Sept. 30) for a status hearing.

The latest incident is the second time Hart has been arrested at a party following the fatal crash Nov. 3 that killed Chimal Lopez, a 54-year-old landscaper from Delavan.

She was arrested March 15 after officers responded to a loud-party complaint. Police said she gave a fake name and had been drinking, according to the criminal complaint

At that time, Hart was out on bond.

She also told police she had used marijuana hours before the crash, between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2.

The criminal complaint indicates Hart was possibly northbound in the southbound lane of the highway.

The charge of homicide by intoxicated driving carries a maximum penalty of 25 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.
