INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 12, 2014) – A Noblesville woman accused of driving drunk faces six felony charges following a weekend crash that killed two people.

Paige Byers, 22, appeared in court Monday afternoon. Charges against her include two counts of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated causing death and two counts of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated causing death with a blood alcohol concentration over 0.08.

She also faces a count of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury and operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury with a blood alcohol concentration over 0.08.

On Saturday night, Byers was involved in a crash that killed David Foster, 50, Indianapolis, and Whitney Miller, 28, Fortville. Marsha Foster, 49, was critically hurt. The crash happened around 10:20 p.m. on Fall Creek Road just south of 96th Street. Byers was driving a black Cadillac; the others were in a Ford Explorer.

According to court documents, Byers’ Cadillac veered into the southbound lane and hit the Ford. The impact left a gouge in the road.

Miller’s father told FOX59 that his daughter leaves behind four children and was a loving mother.

Court documents obtained by FOX59 show that Paige Byers told police she went for a drive to “clear her head” after an argument with her boyfriend. Byers admitted she had “three shots of Tequila, two shots of Rum, and a half of a beer” between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday night at a concert.

A blood test showed her BAC was 0.10.
