Authorities said they believe the woman was both intoxicated and distracted by a cell phone at the time of the crash. Her blood alcohol content level was not released.

The station reported that a civil suit stated Crowd crossed the center line and Rich’s car head-on. Rich’s daughter was also injured in the wreck.

Crow was arrested this week after being indicted by a grand jury. Her bond was set at $1.5 million. A mugshot after her booking shows Crow crying and makeup running as she is processed into jail.
