21 year old Kaitlyn Richards has been charged with homicide by vehicle – reckless driving after killing a woman on I-80 near Coralville in January of 2016. The crash injured an entire Swisher family after a distracted Richards rammed them into the path of an oncoming semi.
Richards has been arrested twice for operating under the influence since the fatal accident both times in Johnson County. In April she was charged with OWI after police say she blew a .15 after being stopped for speeding. Last May she was caught in a running car smoking marijuana by Iowa City police.
She faces up to 10 years in prison on the Class C felony charge.
