A Montanan woman has been charged for allegedly hitting and killing a Native American woman and fleeing the scene, People Magazine reported.
Sunny Kathrinne White, 28, was charged with five felonies including vehicular homicide while under the influence in connection with the death of Mika Josephine Westwolf, 22, in March of this year. White was also charged with accidents involving another person or deceased person, two counts of criminal child endangerment, and criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
White has two children, one named Aryan, 4, and Nation, 2.
The deputy believed the defendant may have been under the influence of opiates, according to the affidavit, and White was allegedly “shaky on her feet” and “nodded off and fell in and out of sleep” in the back of the deputy’s vehicle when he took her to the hospital for a blood draw.
She refused to provide a blood sample, so the deputy had to obtain a search warrant for the blood, which was collected more than four hours after the crash, the affidavit states.
Police obtained a search warrant for White’s vehicle and allegedly found “a small makeup tube with methamphetamine inside,” five syringes and two unopened packages of Narcan inside, the affidavit states. White’s blood sample also allegedly tested positive for methamphetamine and fentanyl.
