Man sentenced in drunken crash that killed 2

Tavizon-Ramos sentenced to 10 years in prison

A 21-year-old man was sentenced Wednesday to 10 years in prison for a fatal crash that killed a woman and her grandson last Easter.

Prosecutors said Omar Tavizon-Ramos was drunk and driving more than 80 mph when the crash happened.

The victims, 61-year-old Margaret Worden and her grandson, 19-year-old Jeffery Bauer, were delivering papers the morning of the crash.

Tavizon-Ramos was hospitalized after the crash and had to use a wheelchair, but police didn’t station officers outside his room, and he left UW Hospital in Madison, according to court documents.

He took off on a Madison Metro bus and was missing for several days before being arrested, prosecutors said.

In Rock County Circuit Court, the family of the victims was emotional during the sentencing Wednesday.

The judge said Tavizon-Ramos is not a U.S. citizen and will likely be deported once he finishes his 10-year sentence.
