A 24-year-old Neillsville woman is facing felony charges in connection with a car crash that killed her children earlier this year. Aurelia Perez Amador was driving without a valid license on April 2nd on Granton Road and was involved in a weather-related crash. Her vehicle slid off a snow-covered road and crashed into a tree. Her two daughters were killed in the wreck.
Police reports indicate at the time of the crash there were no car seats in the vehicle and the children were not using seatbelts. Perez Amador had been ticketed twice before for not having her children in child seats.
Perez Amador is now charged with two counts of child neglect resulting in death and two counts of driving without a valid license resulting in death. If convicted she faces up to 60-years in prison.
She is now free on $2,000 signature bond. She’s scheduled for an initial appearance in Clark County Court on June 9.
