Woman Charged in Fatal Crash Hurt in Another Crash
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The Montana Highway Patrol says a Helena woman charged with negligent vehicular homicide for a December crash was driving a car involved in a rollover on Interstate 15 near Helena.
The Independent Record reports 30-year-old Brandy Dullum and her passenger, 25-year-old Zachary David Cottrill, were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses say Dullum was southbound at a high rate of speed Wednesday afternoon when she struck the rear of a southbound truck while trying to pass. The car rolled several times and ended up in its roof in the median.
Dullum is charged with driving drunk in a December crash that killed passenger Devon Richetti.
Authorities say Dullum was not violating the law by driving. Trooper Ben Havron says there were no signs of alcohol being a factor in Wednesday’s crash.
