The driver of the Sonata, later identified as Bernida Collins, was taken to the hospital. Police say investigators believe the woman’s 50-year-old daughter was intoxicated, based on evidence collected at the scene and conversations with police after the crash.
A search warrant was obtained, and the bloodbath in Collins was complete. Police did not say what his degree of intoxication was, but charged Collins with intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault with a vehicle causing serious bodily injury.
