HEBRON, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ The 50-year-old Hebron woman charged with backing into a RHAM Middle School teacher in March that led to her eventual death had alcohol in her system at the time of the crash.
According to multiple reports, court documents reveal Elizabeth Everett had a blood-alcohol level of .07 when she hit Dawn Mallory, 65, who died two weeks later from injuries sustained in the crash. The legal limit in Connecticut is .08.
The documents further explain that Everett was going 14 miles per hour at the time of the crash and was in a designated bus lane.
At this point she’s charged with misconduct with a motor vehicle and unsafe backing.
A lawyer for Mallory’s estate says there are plans to sue the town and possibly Everett, but nothing has been filed until a final police report is released.
