BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek police have released the name of the young victims of a suspected drunk driver who were struck as they walked along Columbia Avenue late Saturday night.
Lillie Montgomery was killed and boyfriend Christopher Gariepy was critically injured.
He has since been upgraded to good condition at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo.
The 57-year-old woman from Ceresco who was behind the wheel of the pick-up truck is free pending the results of blood tests to determine if she was legally drunk.
Officers say it appears she was driving about 15 mph below the posted limit when she struck the young couple.
