EVERETT, Wash. - Toxicology tests show a Granite Falls woman who police said caused a five-car pileup on Highway 2 was not high on marijuana.
Heather Lee told police she smoked pot the same day as the June crash, and though she tested positive for marijuana hours after the crash, the amount was below the state’s legal limit.
Troopers said Lee sideswiped a stopped car, turned into oncoming traffic and hit a minivan head on.
Eight people were hurt, including 5 children.
The Herald reports Lee was sentenced to three months in jail.
She has vowed to give up marijuana and get mental health treatment.
