WSP: Driver smoked pot before pile-up that injured 8
Janill Gilbert stashed this in Seattle
MONROE, Wash. - A violent Monday evening car crash on State Route 2 in Snohomish County injured eight people, including five children.Washington State Patrol troopers said the causing driver had smoked marijuana earlier in the day and she has since been arrested.
Lee was treated and then booked into Snohomish County jail for investigation of three counts of vehicular assault. According to the statement for probable cause, Lee told investigators after the crash that she had turned her head to the back of the car because her two kids were fighting and screaming in the back seat and didn't notice traffic had slowed ahead of her until it was too late. She also admitted to detectives she had smoked "a bowl" of marijuana earlier in the day.
Rare is the person who can smoke a bowl and still have the motivation to try to drive.
But clearly driving under the influence is bad.
That she was driving with her children will increase the driver's woes by a factor of fucked.
Seriously, memo to people: don't smoke a bowl and then drive your kids around. Really.
