There is possibly no situation that is worse for a parent than losing a child in an accident. It can be even more disheartening, however, to have been the one driving.
That is the unfortunate situation that a Chester County woman finds herself in after she was arrested on Friday following the crash that took the life of her eight-year-old daughter.
According to authorities, Jennifer Trego, 32, of Coatesville, turned herself in to the police on Friday afternoon in connection to the crash August 13, 2015, where she was allegedly driving on a suspended license and under the influence of illicit drugs.
Trego failed to stop her minivan at an intersection that merged onto Route 82 when her vehicle was broadsided by another vehicle. Trego’s daughter, Krista, was killed in the accident.
Tests indicated that she had marijuana along with unprescribed prescription drugs in her system at the time of the fatal crash.
