California Drunk Driver Kills Mother of Six in Fatal Car Crash
Katie Evans, a wife and mother of six, was killed in a fatal car crash on October 6. She had been on her way home from visiting her baby twin girls in the hospital.
The suspected driver responsible for the car crash, Alexia Cina, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence. She had originally been charged with misdemeanor DUI.
In California, the legal blood alcohol content when driving is .08. Toxicology tests reported that Cina had a blood alcohol content of .21 at the time of the car crash.
Cina was reportedly booked at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station jail, with a bail of $200,000.
The victim, Evans, will be missed by her family and friends.
“Katie couldn’t go a day without visiting her brand-new twin girls in the hospital,” wrote family friend Natalie Mortensen in an online fundraising page for the family. “She was a devoted mother, sister and wife and will be immensely missed.”
Evans and her husband have six children between the ages of 2 and 12, in addition to the newborn twin girls. Jacob Evans, Katie’s husband, is trying to help his family heal.
“Obviously, there are consequences when things happen,” he said. “But I don’t wish any more ill on anyone. I am trying to focus on my family.”
