Seabrook driver indicted in September Hampton bicycle deaths
Prosecutors said in the new indictments that Hess was under the influence of Fentanyl, Klonopin, Percocet and Benzodiazepines while she was behind the wheel of her friend’s 2002 Honda.
Hess was driving southbound along Route 1A around 8:30 a.m. when she veered the car over the double yellow line crashing into a group of bicyclists, according to prosecutors.
Two other cyclists, Uwe Uhmeyer, 60, and Margo Heigh, 54, also of Massachusetts, were also injured.
The crash happened hours after Hess had been stopped by police on the same road and ticketed for speeding and driving without a license.
Cindy Sheppard, who allegedly supplied her with the Fentanyl, has also been charged in the case.
She is facing a variety of charges for allegedly selling drugs from her home roughly two-and-a-half months before the crash.
Hampton police said Sheppard had 7.3 grams of heroin in her home, along with four ounces of cocaine and small quantities of crack cocaine, oxycodone, diazepam, methylone and marijuana.Sheppard is asking a judge to throw out all evidence seized from her home in that case, claiming that a pair of search warrants used to raid her home failed to cite any evidence of her dealing drugs.
