Mom who drove SUV with family off cliff was drunk

Mom who drove SUV with family off cliff was drunk

Data recovered from the vehicle's software has led investigators to believe that the driver deliberately sped the SUV off the cliff in Mendocino County, located more than 160 miles north of San Francisco.

Wife Sarah Hart and two of the dead children had "an ingredient that's commonly found in [the over-the-counter allergy medication] Benadryl", in their systems when they perished, but it's not clear what authorities are making of that finding, the captain added. The legal limit in California is.08%.

The woman behind the wheel of an SUV that plunged off a California cliff last month with her wife and children inside was drunk, authorities said on Friday.

Investigators have not come up with a motive but say it appears the incident was intentional, The FBI is deploying their Behavioral Analysis Unit to assist and try to understand what happened.

None of the occupants were wearing seat belts, Carpenter said.

The body was pulled from the water at 10:20 a.m.by Humboldt County Sheriff's Office searchers scanning the river about 7 miles south of where Sandeep and Soumya Thottapilly, their children Siddhant, 12, and Saachi, 9, are believed to have been plunged into its strong current, said Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman.

"These items were of a personal nature and will not be described further at this time, but it does confirm the fact the vehicle that was seen going into the river was that of the Thottapilly family", the California Highway Patrol said.

Five bodies were found March 26 near the small city of Mendocino, a few days after Washington state authorities began investigating the Harts for possible child neglect, but three of their children were not immediately recovered from the scene. The items found from the river have identified positive by the family members. Their three other adopted children are missing, 16-year-old Hannah Hart, 12-year-old Sierra Hart and 15-year-old Devonte Hart, who is known for a viral photo in which he is hugging a police officer in November 2014.

Sarah Hart earlier had faced allegations of mistreatment in Minnesota, where she and Jennifer lived when the children were adopted about a decade ago from Texas. Allman says DNA analysis from biological family members will be used to determine her identity.
