21-Year Old Wisconsin Woman Accused of Killing Another Woman During Drunk Driving Hit and Run Had Previous Drunk Driving Arrests

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Jessica McKay drove drunk, ran a red light, and hit and killed 25-year-old Melissa Ahrens in Milwaukee, then fled the scene.

According to the article from TMJ4 in Milwaukee, McKay was arrested for drunk driving in Waukesha County in April 2007. She was convicted in May and the very next day she was arrested again in Dodge County for once again driving drunk.

Ignition interlocks might have prevented this tragedy. Contact your lawmakers and urge them to require alcohol ignition interlocks for all convicted DUI offenders.
