Thousands in Bills for DUI Suspect
We now know how much Sangamon County
taxpayers owe for the medical bills of a woman accused in a fatal traffic accident.
The running total for DUI suspect Amber Kline is just over $9,250. The bill at Springfield Clinic is $331.50. The SIU bill is $8,919.
In August, Kline was arrested at Memorial Medical Center, where she was being treated for injuries stemming from that single car accident. In it, one woman was killed and two others were also injured.
Kline is behind bars at the Sangamon County jail. County taxpayers are responsible for covering the cost of medical care during her stay there.
