DULUTH - A Bayfield man is due back in court Sept. 5 on charges that he drove past two vehicles stopped at a light, and then injured a pedestrian in Duluth before driving off.
Bond has been set at $150,000 for 29-year-old Robert Buehlman. He’s charged with causing great bodily harm with a vehicle, hit-and-run, driving after his license was suspended, driving without insurance, and not stopping for a light.
The incident happened on Monday. The pedestrian, 33-year-old Ashen-Shugar-Aren Diehl, is reported to be in a medically-induced coma. She severed her spinal cord in the mishap – and she suffered a collapsed-and-bruised lung, broken ribs, and possible a broken leg. Diehl’s nine-year-old daughter escaped injury. After hitting the woman, police said Buehlman drove to a nearby lot and fled on foot – and he was arrested a short time later on Duluth’s Lake-Walk. Buehlman reportedly told officers that he quote, “freaked out.”
