Charges in Motor Vehicle Drowning

(The Pines, IN) - A Michigan City man is charged in connection with a female drowning after he drove into a pond. Marcus Wright, 32, is charged with Operating While Intoxicated Causing Death and other counts.


It’s alleged Wright went straight at a T intersection then drove through a yard before crashing into a pond near The Pines on March 25. Alisa Oman, who was under 18 years of age, drowned. A one-year-old boy in the vehicle was last reported on a breathing machine.


Wright told police Oman was driving, but police disputed his story because of evidence like the driver’s seat positioned for someone the height of Wright.


According to authorities, Wright and Oman were living day-to-day at a Michigan City motel before the accident.
