Mother was driving drunk when Hart family SUV plunged into ocean, police say

The woman who was behind the wheel of an SUV that plunged over a cliff and ended up in the Pacific along the rocky Northern California shore last month ‘ killing her wife and kids ‘ was legally drunk, authorities said Friday.

California HIghway Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter told reporters that toxicology tests showed that “the preliminary blood-alcohol content was a .102” for the driver, a reading that’s about 25 percent high than the state’s legal drunk driving definition of .08.

The GMC Yukon plunged off the cliff off Highway 1 on March 26. Medocino County Sheriff Thomas D. Allman said today the vehicle pulled onto “a dirt pullout” before stopping 70 feet from the edge and then producing “just acceleration, until they went over.”

Police: Woman who drove SUV with family off cliff was drunk

SAN FRANCISCO — A woman was drunk when she drove her large family off a Northern California cliff last month and her wife and several children had large amounts of a drug in their systems that can cause drowsiness, authorities said Friday.

Preliminary toxicology tests found Jennifer Hart had an alcohol level of 0.102, said California Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter. California drivers are considered drunk with a level of 0.08 or higher.

Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the family’s SUV when it plunged off a cliff in Mendocino County, more than 160 miles (250 kilometers) north of San Francisco.

Authorities have said data from the vehicle’s software suggested the crash was deliberate, though the California Highway Patrol has not concluded why the vehicle went off an ocean overlook on a rugged part of coastline. A specialized team of accident investigators is trying to figure that out with help from the FBI, Carpenter said.
