BREAKING: 6-year-old dies after accident with alleged drunken driver

Town of Troy — A 6-year-old boy was killed after a suspected drunken driver allegedly blew a stop sign Thursday causing a two-vehicle crash.

Scott Dragotta, 44, East Troy, is being held in the Walworth County Jail on a $100,000 cash bond. He was arrested on charges of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle and operating while under the influence causing great bodily harm.

During a Friday bail bond hearing, District Attorney Phil Koss said Dragotta failed field sobriety tests and had a 0.19 blood alcohol level, according to a portable breathalyzer test.

At 8:11 p.m., the Sheriff's Department was dispatched to an accident at the Highway 20 and N intersection involving a Chevy Suburban and a Saturn Vue.

Dragotta, who was driving the Suburban, is also a suspect in a hit-and-run accident that occurred minutes earlier at the Highways ES and D intersection.

The boy, Treyton E. Kilar was in the backseat of the Saturn Vue and was unresponsive when deputies arrived to the scene.

Deputies immediately initiated CPR on Treyton, who was transported to Waukesha Memorial Hospital. At 9:42 p.m., Treyton was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Treyton was in the vehicle with his father, 44-year-old Michael S. Kilar, who was driving, his sister Kindyl E. Kilar, 5, and Rosemary L. Jaskolski, 15, all of Whitewater.

During the hearing, Koss said Michael was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

The initial investigation indicates that Dragotta was driving north on Highway N and Kilar was traveling west on Highway 20. Dragotta allegedly failed to stop at the marked intersection and crashed into Kilar's vehicle.

Dragotta has lived in Walworth County for the past 20 years, is married and has two children, according to defense attorney Jim Martin, who represented Dragotta during the bail bond hearing.

Martin also said Dragotta has no prior criminal record.
