Port Huron Township woman charged in fatal crash was free on bond in separate case

(ST. CLAIR COUNTY) -- The 30-year old Port Huron Township woman involved in a fatal crash that killed two Avoca area men July 20 was out on bond for a separate case that took place last March. Lisa Bergman was arraigned Friday in St. Clair County District Court on two counts of operating while intoxicated causing death and two counts of operating on a suspended license causing death. Her bond was set at $50,000 cash or surety. 19-year old Russell Ward and 20-year old Koby Raymo were killed in the crash after Bergman allegedly crossed the centerline on Lapeer Road early July 20, striking their pickup head-on. Also Friday, Bergman was arraigned on charges of possession of a controlled substance, and operating while intoxicated stemming from a May 2012 incident. Her bond on that case was set at $20,000. Preliminary exams have been scheduled for August 6. The case that Bergman was free on a $2,000 bond at the time of the fatal crash, happened in March of 2012. Her trial on charges of possession of a controlled substance, operating under the influence, failing to stop at the scene of a property accident and habitual offender was set to begin August 1. Officials say the delay in the case was from getting drug test results back from the lab.
