Woman Arraigned For Murder For Deadly Alleged DUI Crash

A 25-year-old woman is being charged with murder for an allegedly drunken crash that killed two teenagers last month. The collision happened at 12:35am on November 3rd at the corner of Hartnell and Churn Creek. A Ford Freestyle driven by Kendra Andersen-Schwegerl was southbound on Churn Creek Road. Witnesses say she was speeding and was straddling both southbound lanes. When she got to the Hartnell intersection the light was red and she plowed into the right rear of a Toyota Corolla containing five people. Both vehicles slid across the intersection. 19-year-old Erica Young and 18-year-old Wa-Rec Lacy Mae Jackson were killed. The other three passengers were 19-year-old Ralph Joseph, who had injuries to his left arm and leg, 18-year-old Daisy Reece, who had head pain, and 19-year-old Clifford Bailey, who suffered a broken jaw. Andersen-Schwegerl had minor injuries and was treated and released from the hospital. There were open containers of alcohol in her SUV. The District Attorney’s Office says she had a blood alcohol level of .254 which is more than 3 times the legal limit. An arrest warrant for two counts of second degree murder was issued for Andersen-Schwegerl and she was arrested in Lake County on Friday. Arraignment was set for Monday morning.
