We are devasted to report this update from the investigation into country artist Kylie Rae Harris ‘ death.
Back in September, it was determined the Big Ol’ Heartache singer was at fault in a regrettable three-vehicle car crash that killed her, disabled another move, and claimed living conditions of 16 -year-old Maria Elena Cruz .

A spokesperson for the Taos County Sheriff’s Office proved their findings in a press statement on Thursday 😛 TAGEND
” Data[ from the cars’ on-board computers] proved Ms. Harris’ hastened at 102 km / hour at the time of writing of the first collision contest before crossing into the oncoming lane and impressing Ms. Cruz’ vehicle at 95 km / hour .”
Wow. 102 km / hour? That’s an extremely dangerous speeding for even some of the most experienced drivers…
Authorities too shared acquires from a toxicology report which substantiated Harris’ blood alcohol concentration height was three times the legal limit for impaired driving at. 28. Meanwhile, teen operator Cruz had no alcohol in her system at the time of the crash.
Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said police initially believed alcohol played a factor in the incident and to explain their office’s investigation 😛 TAGEND
” The now-completed investigation supports what we supposed at the time of our initial investigation and my earlier press release that territory booze intake was suspected and hastening was a factor .”
UGH. We can only imagine difficult this must be for the Cruz family to know this senseless tragedy could have been avoided with much better decision making on Harris’ part.
Not merely was she recording Instagram videos while in the driver’s seat, according to court records obtained by DailyMail.com , Harris had a history of drunk driving, too.
