'14 Plows through house
 
Woman Jailed After Car Plows Through Washington House

A 68-year-old woman was jailed but later released Saturday after she plowed an SUV through a house in Washington, killing her partner and injuring her daughter and son-in-law, police said.
The woman was booked on one count of vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault, but released within hours pending an investigation, King County Sgt. DB Gates told NBC affiliate King 5.




The Jeep the woman was driving shot through the lakeside home on Friday night, killing a 70-year-old man inside and critically injuring the woman's daughter and son-in-law, who were outside on the deck.
Even though the vehicle ended up partially submerged into Lake Sammamish, the woman and her 3-year-old grandson in the SUV were uninjured.


Detectives found probable cause of impairment after the accident, but Gates said toxicology reports were still pending, King 5 reported.
One woman was detained on vehicular homicide and assault counts on Saturday, according to King County Jail Records. That woman was detained at 1:43 a.m. Saturday and released at 7:56 p.m., records show.
Gates said investigators are trying to reconstruct what caused the fatal accident.


Neighbor Kevin Connelly told King 5 that the woman was "just moving the car" when it "shot forward through the house."

I am thinking impairment as the cops first suspected but guess we'll have to wait to see what the test results say.

Reminds me of this thread: http://www.jeepgarage.org/f73/carwas...rum-68785.html I think the electronic shifter may be problematic for some folks.

Or was this one of those cases where she hit the gas instead of the brakes?

I think she took the phrase Go Anywhere, Do Anythingģ a little too seriously.

Itís always good to know Iím not the only one who thinks this way.

Sounds like her accelerator and brake pedal got swapped by someone. Unfortunately this has now ended and ruined lives.

I hope this woman is never allowed to drive again.
