Driver in Fatal Crash Had Dog’s Xanax in System, Records Say
Marika Stone was cycling with two friends on the afternoon of Dec. 30, 2017, when the Bend, Ore., dentist was struck and instantly killed by a GMC Sierra that crossed the center line as it drove toward the group. Now, the trial has begun for the driver, who is charged with manslaughter in the 38-year-old's death—and in court records filed this week, the Deschutes County District Attorney’s office says Shantel Lynn Witt had at least 11 medications in her system at the time of the crash, and that one of those medications was Xanax that had been prescribed to her dog, Oregon Live reports.
