Driver Allegedly High in Fatal Collision
updated: May 17, 2014, 1:15 PM

The Lompoc woman charged with second-degree murder in a fatal crash last December was allegedly high on nitrous oxide, reports The Independent.

37-year-old Rebecca Sandoval was arrested on December 19, 2013 on suspicion of DUI after her vehicle rear ended 68-year-old Buellton resident Linda Wall's vehicle near the Chumash Casino on Hwy 246. District Attorney Joyce Dudley charged Sandoval with second-degree murder, felony gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, and felony driving under the influence of drugs causing bodily injury.

Wall retired from Santa Ynez Valley High School in June of 2012 after thirty-eight years of teaching, twenty-two of those spent at SYVHS. According to Wall's obituary, she was looking forward to traveling, enjoying time with her husband of forty-three years, and playing with their new grandson.

Sandoval appeared in court earlier this week and was allegedly huffing/inhaling nitrous oxide the day of the accident. She pleaded not guilty to murder and vehicle manslaughter in February, and remains in custody facing 15 years to life in prison, reports The Independent.
