MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) – The driver of a car that struck and killed a University of Wisconsin-Stout student has been acquitted of charges.

A jury in Dunn County Thursday night found Isaac Storandt not guilty in the death of 24-year-old Michael Dixon of McGregor, Minn. Storandt faced several charges, including homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. Storandt’s blood alcohol was nearly .12 percent, above the legal limit of .08.

Dixon died last March, 11 days after he was struck while crossing a street in Menomonie. The Eau Claire Leader-Telegram says Storandt’s defense attorney argued that Dixon had also been drinking and dashed in front of Storandt’s vehicle.
