In the final moments before the accident that took Jamie Baer's life, the 22-year-old cosmetologist frantically text- messaged friends: "I'm going 160 w a drunk drive m going to die."
According to the criminal complaint, Baer, who was texting from the back seat, and her friend, Kelsey Palmer, who was in the front, both had to be cut out of their seat belts. Tregoning, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle.
Palmer and Tregoning survived, but Baer was critically injured and later died.
"I was satisfied," with the bond, said Scott Baer, Jamie Baer's father. Baer and Jamie's mother, Kari Palashewski, were among about a dozen family members who attended the initial hearing Thursday afternoon in downtown Minneapolis.
Fallout from the incident continues to affect the family. Angel, Jamie Baer's baby, was delivered by caesarian the night of the accident only hours before Jamie died, and she remains in poor health.
"We've been trying to wean her off of oxygen," but with no luck so far, said Palashewski, who has custody of Angel. "We've been locked in the house since November 25th," when Angel came home from the hospital, Palashewski said.
