Sheridan Woman Arrested for DUI After Striking, Killing Husband
For the second time in less than two weeks, the Sheridan Police Department (SPD) is investigating a DUI crash involving a pedestrian.
Just before 8 p.m. June 9, SPD officers responded to a report of a person struck by a vehicle in the 300 block of East Brundage Street. When officers arrived, they found a male lying in the roadway with severe trauma, according to a press release issued this morning.
The investigation revealed the male was reportedly struck by a truck driven by his wife, 40-year-old Angela McIver Livingston.
McIver Livingston allegedly stopped in the middle of the road while arguing with a couple on a motorcycle. Her husband had gotten out of the vehicle without her knowledge. Details of the incident are not being released at this time.
The male was treated at the scene by Rocky Mountain Ambulance and Sheridan Fire/Rescue before being transported to Sheridan Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
“This tragedy unfolded due to a multitude of unfortunate events, with alcohol being a contributing factor,” said Sheridan Police Chief Richard Adriaens in a press release.
McIver Livingston was arrested for DUI and aggravated homicide by vehicle.
Unrelated DUI vs. Pedestrian Crash
On May 29, just after 5 p.m., 67-year-old James Schmidt was arrested for DUI after striking a pedestrian and another vehicle in the 600 block of Thurmond Street.
According to Lt. Travis Koltiska, Schmidt was traveling south when he allegedly struck a pedestrian standing near the driver’s side of a parked vehicle.
As Schmidt looked behind in his mirror, believing he struck a parked vehicle, he ran into another vehicle in the intersection of Thurmond and Heald Street.
The 52-year-old pedestrian that was hit suffered serious life-threatening injuries. He was transported to Sheridan Memorial, and later, life flighted to Billings for treatment.
His condition is unknown.
