Mother Who Drove Family of 8 Off Cliff Was Drunk

Mother Who Drove Family of 8 Off Cliff Was Drunk

A woman believed to have intentionally driven her wife and children off a cliff in the USA state of California was legally drunk, the local sheriff's office said.

In a statement on Thursday, police said they are continuing their efforts to search for the missing children. We are in touch with the state police department.

A toxicology report revealed that Jennifer Hart had a 0.102 alcohol level, California Patrol Capt. Bruce Carpenter said. California drivers are considered drunk with a level of.08 or higher.

"Sarah Hart and two of the children had a positive toxicology finding in their blood for Diphenhydramine, an active ingredient in Benadryl", it said. It has not been determined in the third child.

Carpenter said none of the car's occupants were wearing seatbelts.

A body was found last week near the crash site that officials said may be one of the three missing children, but the body has yet to be identified.

Investigators began to examine the possibility that the disappearance might be linked to a report that the highway patrol received on April 6 of a vehicle plummeting into the Eel River from USA 101, a north-south highway that runs through Washington State, Oregon and California. A specialized team of accident investigators is trying to figure that out with help from the FBI, Carpenter said.


Authorities said that a vehicle, which witnesses defined as possibly a Honda Pilot SUV, vanished after falling in to the rain-swollen Eel River in Mendocino County around 1 p.m. Friday. Carpenter said "a lot about this case is unusual ... baffling nearly".

A body that may be one of the remaining three missing children was recovered on April 7. The crash killed Jennifer Hart, 38, Sarah Hart, 38, Markis Hart, 19, Jeremiah Hart, 14, and Abigail Hart, 14. The other three children - Devonte, 15, Hannah, 16, and Sierra, 12 - were not found. Authorities believe the entire family was in the vehicle when it crashed into the rocky Pacific Ocean.

Devonte drew national attention after he was photographed in tears while hugging a white police officer during a 2014 protest.

The Harts moved to a home in Woodland, Washington, in mid-2017, neighbors said.

On April 8, the relatives in San Jose contacted the police department and officially reported the family missing, telling the authorities that the family had been traveling from Portland.

Initially, Allman said the body was that of a child but the sheriff's office later corrected that it was a woman's.

Patricia, whose has six children aged between 13 and one, said the benefit cap made it impossible for her to pay her rent, bills and feed the whole family. She says the six kids were regularly punished for common childlike and adolescent behavior, such as laughing too loudly. Sarah Hart reportedly also had diphenhydramine in her system.
