GREEN BAY - We're learning new details regarding the crash that injured a Green Bay Police Officer earlier this month. And the man authorities say was behind the wheel has now been officially charged.
25-year-old Ryan Rivard of Green Bay faces multiple alcohol related charges. That includes his 4th OWI in five years.
Dressed in orange, and scars from the accident still visible, Ryan Rivard was officially charged in Brown County court on Monday.
It all started more than a week ago.
Police say Officer Tracy Liska was pulling out of the Kwik Trip parking lot on Lombardi Avenue when her car was hit by a Cadillac.
According to the criminal complaint, police say the driver's side was "completely smashed in."
The report states that another officer saw Liska "hunched over in the driver's seat" and that she was "very pale and appeared to be unconscious."
The report says witnesses told police they heard the vehicle coming at a high rate of speed.
According to a witness in the report, "He stated a short time after he saw the vehicle as it passed another which made it look like the vehicle was standing still."
The witness went on to say he approximated the car's speed was 90 miles per hour.
The report says when Rivard was asked about what he remembered from the crash, he stated, "I saw the cop turn out in front of me and then it was way too late."
Both Rivard and Liska were taken to the hospital.
According to the complaint, Liska was released from the hospital a week later.
The report says Liska had a broken collar bone that required surgery. It said she also had a broken rib and a punctured lung that had collapsed.
Rivard could face up to 12 years in prison if convicted.
Rivard's bond was set at $10,000 cash. He's due back in court later this month.
