After Standoff, Driver in Fatal Suspected DUI Case Commits Suicide

A shocking twist to a fatal weekend accident in Lincoln, the motorist who was suspected of driving under the influence and causing that deadly wreck apparently took his own life just hours after being released from the hospital.


Police say 65-year-old Michael Foster of Lincoln turned left in front an oncoming motorcycle Friday night.


The bike collided with Foster’s truck, killing the motorcyclist and critically injuring his passenger, a 40-year-old woman from Palmyra.


Foster was taken to Memorial Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries but was released early Saturday morning.


However, by 8 a.m., police were called to Foster’s home by a friend, who said Foster was suicidal.


Officers tried for several hours to communicate with him, eventually entering the home and finding him dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
