    Driver in drunk-driving crash that killed 2 toddlers, Bangor woman ordered to stand trial on murder charges | MLive.com


    SOUTH HAVEN, MI – David Johnson’s attorney argued Wednesday that “intervening issues,” not just the actions of his client, played a role in the crash last month that killed a Bangor woman and two toddlers.
    Among the issues, Darrell Fahey said, were toxicology tests that showed that Brittney King, the other driver involved in the fatal crash, had high levels of heroin and a narcotic pain reliever in her system at the time.
    And Fahey pointed to testimony from a Michigan State Police crash reconstructionist who said he believed that Cassadi Berryhill, 4, and Kandice Berryhill, 2, who were both passengers in King’s vehicle, would have survived the crash had they been in proper child-restraint seats.

    I think we should ban the use of heroin, alcohol, and pain meds while driving.



    Oh wait...

    How do you order a dead woman to stand trial for murder?

    ^^^ You can't, but I can guarantee you that if that was the first time that she drove her car while under the influence of drugs with her kids in there with her, she would do it again and then eventually she would have been the reason why her kids are not here anymore.

    God bless you always!!!

    it's sad that they died this way...and i agree with others that if the mother was on these drugs she would "probably" be the cause of her children's death sometime in the future. BUT....she was not the cause of this accident. So i don't see how she can be blamed for it. What she did was wrong, but she didn't cause their deaths.

    ^^^ Amen. That man is the reason why that lady and her kids are not here anymore which is why he is the one going down for it no matter how things were going for his victims.

    God bless you always!!!
