MANITOWOC, WI (WHBL) - A five-thousand-dollar bond was set yesterday for a Manitowoc man while he awaits charges in a hit-and-run road-rage crash that killed a teenager. The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Eric Neuman, of Two Rivers. Authorities said Neuman and three other men went to a factory in Manitowoc late Tuesday night to settle a score with 22-year-old Shawn Lischka. Police said there was no fight at the plant, but Neuman and the other three drove off in a pick-up truck. Lischka pursued them through Manitowoc into Two Rivers. Officials said Lischka sideswiped Neuman's vehicle, which then spun into a guardrail and ejected the driver. He died at a hospital. A 16-year-old boy in the truck was treated for a head injury. Two others in the truck were not hurt. A prosecutor said Lischka drove off after the crash, and was arrested at his home later after he tried hiding the damage to his vehicle. Lischka has not been charged yet. Police are recommending counts of hit-and-run causing death, and negligent homicide.
