More than three years after 26-year-old Sandra Vasquez allegedly drove several teenagers home from a party while drunk, resulting in the Oswego crash that killed five, she will be cross-examined in the courtroom, according to the Chicago Daily Herald.
The woman has a tough act to follow, though. Members of the Kendall County jury heard testimony from still-mourning parents and from the surviving teenage passengers.
Sandra Vasquez's Illinois DUI attorney claims her blood-alcohol content reading, recorded at 0.124 percent, was skewed by vomiting before the test. Instead of intoxication, her attorney insists the crash was caused by one of the teenagers grabbing the steering wheel or kicking the back of her seat.
