Maine driver charged in pedestrian accident that killed camp counselor from Seattle

A Maine man, Joseph B. Rouleau, age 35, has been indicted on multiple charges, including manslaughter, in the death of Corrie Lazar, 21, of Seattle. Lazar was a senior college student and working as a camp counselor in Maine when Rouleau struck and killed her with his Iszuu Trooper while she was walking with a couple of other counselors.

Rouleau was driving drunk when he lost control of his vehicle, striking and killing Lazar as it rolled, and injuring one of her companions, Mia Jessup. Blood tests after the car accident showed that Rouleu’s blood alcohol content was 0.23% at the time, nearly three times the legal limit.

Rouleau was charged with manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol charges, as well as for charges connected with driving with a suspended driver’s license. Rouleau faces a maximum of 30 years in jail in connection with the manslaughter charge.
