2019 Lexington's Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year

Lexington – Woman Had Cocaine During Car Crash

Posted on Thursday, September 12th, 2019 at 6:44 am    

A woman had cocaine the time of a crash.

Lexington officer Stephen Dabkowski testified that 24-year-old Sequoyah Collins had cocaine in her system the night she crashed into a car, killing Alexia Gomez Hernandez. Furthermore, he added that she had a blood alcohol level of 0.211, nearly three times the legal limit.

Lt. Andrew Daugherty said then that Collins was speeding and ran a red light, crashing into a car with two adults and four children.

She was charged with murder last week. Her lawyer failed to reduce her sentence to manslaughter.

Judge Lindsay Hughes Thurston sent the murder, DUI, assault and wanton endangerment charges to a grand jury.
