Special Section: David Bisard Trial  (

Bisard is accused of DUI and crashing into a group of motorcyclists. Eric Wells died in the crash, and two others, Mary Wells and Kurt Weekly, were seriously injured.

Earlier this week, 12 jurors and three alternates were selected to sit in judgment of the forthcoming evidence and testimonies presented by the defense and prosecution.

Investigators said blood tests expected to be introduced as evidence show Bisard had a blood-alcohol level more than twice Indiana's legal limit of 0.08 percent at the time of the crash.

Wells and Weekly were scheduled to take the stand Thursday.
