Police say Long Island mom also was high while driving wrong way

A Long Island mother was very drunk, with an extra-large bottle of vodka in her car, and was smoking marijuana before she caused a wrong-way crash on a New York highway that killed her, her young daughter and six others, police said Tuesday. Diane Schuler's blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit at the time of the July 26 wreck and she still had undigested alcohol in her stomach, police said. Blood tests also showed she had smoked marijuana 15 minutes to an hour before the crash, said Betsy Spratt, chief toxicologist for the Westchester County Medical Examiner.

"With that level of alcohol ... she would have had difficulty with perception, with her judgment with her memory," Spratt said. "You start to get what we call tunnel vision."

The fiery head-on crash on the Taconic Parkway, about 35 miles northwest of New York City, killed the 36-year-old mother, her 2-year-old daughter, three young nieces and three men in an SUV. Schuler's 5-year-old son survived.

Toxicology reports found Schuler's blood-alcohol level was 0.19, more than twice the state's legal limit of 0.08, state police Maj. William Carey said. She also had six grams of undigested alcohol in her stomach, Carey said. A broken, 1.75-liter bottle of Absolut vodka was found in the wrecked minivan, Carey said.

Fucking bitch killed her 2-year-old daughter, three young nieces and three men in a SUV. Her 5-year-old son survived.
