ELDERON, Wis. (AP) – A woman who reportedly fell from a moving pickup truck in Marathon County has died. Sheriff’s officials say 27-year-old Catherine Borchardt died Tuesday of injuries sustained early Sunday morning. The driver of the pickup, Brandon Bender, has been criminally charged. A complaint says Bender told authorities he and Borchardt had visited several bars in the Wausau area. The 27-year-old Antigo man told investigators he took a “hard left” on Highway 49 in Elderon and Borchardt fell out of the vehicle. The Wausau Daily Herald (http://wdhne.ws/12J8ZWt ) reports Bender took the woman to her house and called police after he realized she wasn’t breathing. Bender is being held in the Marathon County Jail on $25,000 bond.
