Westchester DA: No charges in Taconic crash
Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore says no criminal charges will be filed in a wrong-way crash that killed anintoxicated woman and seven others.
DiFiore made the decision after meeting Tuesday with state police and some victims' relatives.
Authorities say Diane Schuler, 36, was drunk and high on marijuana when she drove the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway in Westchester last month before her minivan slammed into an SUV. The crash killed Schuler, her 2-year-old daughter, three young nieces and three men in the SUV. Her 5-year-old son survived.
?Diane Schuler died in the crash and the charges died with her,? DiFiore says.
The families of the three Yonkers men killed in the crash say they?re comfortable with DiFiore?s decision.
