Man accused in crash is arraigned

The driver of a vehicle that collided with a power pole, leaving passenger and South Lake Tahoe preschool teacher April Krouskoupf in critical condition, was arraigned in El Dorado County Superior Court on Wednesday.

Patrick Curtis faces 16 months to three years in prison if convicted of the charge of felony drunk driving causing injury, as a result of the crash in September.

Curtis could receive an additional six months for allegedly driving on a suspended license, Judge Jerald Lasarow said Wednesday.

Lasarow scheduled a pre-preliminary hearing in the case for Dec. 10.

Friends of Krouskoupf have said she currently is recovering at home.
