Teen convicted for two crashes on same night


Buffalo County (WQOW) - A teen who crashed two different vehicles less than two hours apart in two different counties will not be able to drive for the next eight months.

A Buffalo County judge revoked Michael Burda's driver's license Thursday.

In July, Burda crashed his mini-van in a ditch in Pepin County. Investigators say Burda and a passenger went to Burda's Durand home to get a truck to retrieve the crashed van. But deputies say Burda then lost control of the truck, which rolled several times. His passenger, Dylan Grossell, was found on the ground surrounded by power lines that fell in the crash.

Burda, 17, was convicted of drunk driving. He was fined and ordered to get an ignition interlock device on his car. 

Last month he was fined nearly $500 for the Pepin County crash.
