(FOX NEWS) - A 17-year-old girl accused of crashing her vehicle into an Indiana home Wednesday night, killing to two girls inside, may have been high on opiates, authorities says.
The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office said the teenager was arrested and they have asked the prosecutor to charge her with criminal recklessness resulting in death. She could face more serious charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated if opiates in her system are confirmed, Fox 59 reported.
According to authorities, the crash happened just before 9:30 p.m. in the home of Dennis and Bridget Fullerton. When sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, they found a white vehicle inside the living room.
Two sisters, 17-year-old Haleigh and 9-year-old Callie, were watching television when the car crashed into the house. They were killed on impact, authorities said.
