Authorities say that a woman from New Hampshire had drugs in her possession, which they then alleged she gave to a woman who is 19 years old. After taking the drugs, that woman was involved in a car accident with a group of cyclists. Two of the cyclists were killed in the accident.
According to reports, the young driver had already been pulled over by the police for breaking the speed limit. They say that she then met up with the older woman, who is 49, and took the drugs. After that, they claim that she got back in her car and began speeding again in the same place. This time, her car drifted out of her lane and over the center of the road, where she ran into the cyclists.
Both cyclists who were killed were from Massachusetts.
The police brought the older woman in on drug charges, saying that she had fentanyl, methadone and cocaine. Not only will she face possession charges, but she is also going to face charges for distributing the drugs, which are controlled substances.
The driver will go to court for the incident in November, but the authorities have recently decided to change the date for the older woman's trial. She will now face a judge on the sixth of October. She will also have a hearing on the 25th of September.
Anyone who is facing drug charges for possession, distribution or related violations must know about all of their legal options. They need to remember that they have rights under New Hampshire laws, regardless of the crimes that they have been accused of, and they must ensure that those rights are upheld.
