Bonney Lake woman “not guilty” in car accident that killed young sons

Jayme Lynn Davis, 42, of Bonney Lake, was found not guilty of Vehicular Homicide in the Tacoma car accident that killed her two sons, Jared, 8, and Jordan, 11 reports The News Tribune of Tacoma.

Davis had taken her two sons to a Monster Truck show in Tacoma on January 16th when her vehicle was t-boned on the Bay Street curve. Davis was charged with Vehicular Homicide because she admitted drinking two beers before for the accident though her blood alcohol content (BAC) was under the legal limit at 0.07.

Davis’ attorneys argued that the blood draw was “flawed” and that there was no evidence that Davis was drunk at the time of the accident.

Jurors reviewed a video which was captured by a speed camera and that evidence along with the testimony of a witness gave a reasonable doubt that Davis was not at fault in the car accident. In criminal trials, the prosecution must prove their case where there is no doubt in the mind of a reasonable person that the defendant is guilty.
