ST. CLOUD - A Stearns County judge on Tuesday sentenced a 22-year-old Sauk Centre man to 210 days in jail for his role in an ATV crash that killed a 50-year-old pedestrian.
Wilder B. Kuhlmann was charged with nine felonies after he drove an all-terrain vehicle on the Wobegon Trail while he was reportedly drunk just after midnight on Aug. 15, 2021, striking two pedestrians and injuring himself and a passenger who was thrown from the ATV, according to court documents.
Scott Nathe, 50, of Sauk Centre was walking on the trail just east of Sauk Centre when he was struck by the ATV and sent down a steep embankment. Nathe was found unconscious and taken to a hospital, where he later died. Another pedestrian, a 35-year-old woman from Sauk Centre, suffered a fractured pelvis, nerve damage and a broken arm, according to court documents.
