The Daily Reporter reports Garner told investigators after the August 2013 crash near Fortville that she had used cocaine within the previous days, and tests found high-enough cocaine levels for her to be considered impaired. Authorities say she drove through a stop sign into the path of a pickup truck.

The father of Chad Garner asked the judge for leniency on behalf of his former daughter-in-law.
