A Yavapai County Arizona woman is facing serious charges following an auto accident three months ago. The county sheriff’s department says that the results of a toxicology test show that Jessica Wayas had significant presence of Methamphetamines/Amphetamines in her blood at the time of the incident.
On March 13, Wayas was driving her 1997 Ford Mustang when she hit a 1980 Chevy pick-up truck head-on. Wayas’ 6-year old son and 5-year old daughter were in the car and were injured from not being restrained. Wayas was treated for injuries to her upper body and leg. The 71-year old driver of the pick-up truck was treated for severe chest pain. He had recently undergone heart surgery and has been on medication and in therapy since the accident.
An investigation into the accident showed that Wayas was at fault and had crossed the center line before colliding with the pick-up truck. When the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Department received the results of the blood test from the Department of Public Safety, they filed charges of driving under the influence in Arizona, child abuse, aggravated assault and felony criminal damage. Wayas, 29, is being held on $15,000 bond.
