Wright, who was in shock from the tragedy, fully cooperated with responding officers as they conducted sobriety tests. She maintained she was sober and denied being on her phone during the accident. A breathalyzer detected no alcohol in her system, but officers arrested her for driving under the influence pending the results of her blood tests. She was also booked for talking on her cell phone while driving, and manslaughter.
What a travesty this case ever went to court. This woman probably has had her life ruined. If it hadn’t been for competent defense, the prosecutor would have been happy to put her away with no evidence that she’d broken any law.
