A woman from Big Bay will go to trial in December for an alleged drunk driving incident that killed a young man earlier this year.
34–year–old Amy Tierrablanca is charged with operating while intoxicated, causing death.
Her trial in Marquette County Circuit Court was originally scheduled to have taken place by now, but it’s been pushed back to December 4th.
The auto accident happened on February 4th.
Tierrablanca is accused of driving off of County Road 550 in Big Bay, south of County Road KH.
The vehicle hit a snowbank, rolled over and hit a guy wire attached to a utility pole.
A passenger, 21–year–old Michael Abbott of Big Bay, died at the scene.
Another passenger was also injured.
Tierrablanca is free on bond.
