Police Arrest Woman in Connection to Fatal Crash

A Louisville woman has been arrested in response to an investigation's findings following a crash in Bullitt County. According to the Dec. 8 report, the woman, a 19-year-old, was allegedly high on marijuana when she collided with a 32-year-old man and 30-year-old woman traveling on a motorcycle on John Harper Road. She struck them with her Jeep Liberty at approximately 11:15 p.m. when she attempted to make a left-hand turn.

The two motorcyclists were ejected from the motorcycle. The man was thrown from the motorcycle and ended up in the eastbound lane where he was struck by oncoming traffic. The woman suffered critical injuries. Both were rushed to the hospital, but the young man died from his injuries.

The driver of the Jeep was also taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Reports state that she didn't appear to be drunk and that the police didn't believe that alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash. Since then, they've changed their opinions, stating that the woman was under the influence of marijuana at the time of the collision. She now faces charges including failing to register a motor vehicle, failing to maintain insurance, driving without registration plates, first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree assault, reckless homicide and operating a vehicle while under the influence.

Police Investigation Following a crash

In some cases, it takes time for the police to complete an investigation. When they do finish, new charges may be placed against those who caused collisions, injuries and deaths. If you're injured or lose a loved one, don't give up. Justice may come slowly, but you still have the opportunity to have your say in court.
