    Charges: Girl, 17, Was On Facebook Seconds Before Double Fatal Crash

    BECKER, Minn. (WCCO) — A 17-year-old Little Falls teenager is now charged in the July traffic accident that took the life of a Becker father and his young daughter.

    Carlee Rose Bollig was behind the wheel of a pickup truck on July 21 when it ran a red light at the intersection of U.S. Highway 10 and Sherburne County Road 11.

    Charles Mauer and his 10-year-old daughter, Cassy, were on their way home from the the Monticello library when Bollig slammed into their car.

    Now, crosses stand at the interssection as sad reminders of the senseless cost of distracted driving.

    “From what I knew of Chuck, he was a nice guy,” said Nick Wickham, his next door neighbor.

    Wickham added, “You’re not supposed to be on the phone while driving. It was something that shouldn’t have happened.”

    Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Tiffany Schweigart says investigators now have a clear picture of what led to the fatal crash.


    They have strong evidence that Bollig was texting on her phone and blew through a red light, even ignoring early caution lights of the signal change ahead.


    “What a senseless behavior that caused all of this trauma to this family, using a phone while operating a motor vehicle, 3000 pounds of mass through an intersection, tearing this family apart,” Schweigart said.

    Sherburne County prosecutors have now charged the 17-year old driver with criminal vehicular homicide, using a phone while in motion and driving without a valid license.


    According to the complaint, her passengers on 8 or 9 occasions told the defendant to stop using her phone, but she refused.


    Officials say that moments before impact, Bollig’s passengers yelled “red light, red light!”

    “That is a horrific trauma to go through, even as the driver who caused that incident,” Schweigart said. “You have to live with that the rest of your life.”

    Initially, Bollig’s boyfriend said he was behind the wheel to protect her since she didn’t have a valid license. Other passengers later recanted that claim and confirmed that Bollig was the driver.

    Forensic analysis of Bollig’s phone revealed she was posting to Facebook just seconds before the fatal crash. Bollig is slated to appear in Sherburne County court on Nov. 23.

    There are too many phones on the street. There needs to be a serious dialogue between both parties about what can be done about phone control. Maybe mental health screening or a 7 day cooling off period.

    people of all ages using the phone while driving

    when you hurt/kill someone because you drunk or on that phone then they should charge you with
    real murder and put you away for a long time

    Nothing worse then getting behind some idiot on the phone. But I guess it's safer than being in front of them.

    I honk at drivers that are texting and that appear non threatening or gun pullers. Women, teens, asians and housewives. Not once has the perp every looked up from their phone or changed their behavior.
    they don't even bother to flip me off.

    A former friend of mine did 3 years in a NY State penitentiary for killing a teenaged girl and her Aunt while drunk. Deserved it. He had 2 previous DUIs.

    Anal rape isn't enough punishment.

    I knew this was going to be the subject. This happened just a few miles from my house. Truly despicable. Let the bitch rot.

    There should be a zero-tolerance penalty for this: nothing less than life in prison (would love the death penalty, but I know that's asking for too much). That's probably the only way to get through to these fucking morons.

    And we'll have plenty of room when people in for drugs are freed.
