A Broward County woman was earlier charged with fatally hitting two Park Slope kids in a crosswalk,” law enforcement sources told The Post.
In a recent update, the 45-year old was found dead on her bed inside her Concord home by a friend with numerous bottles of prescription pills to treat high cholesterol, high blood pressure, seizures, heart disease and depression close by. A small, handwritten note was also nearby, sources said.
It said in part: “I’m sorry, I can’t do this anymore,” according to a police source.
The message also said “do not resuscitate,” another source said, adding that the note gave a friend of the deceased power of attorney.
The pal who made the discovery went to check on the deceased after not hearing from her for a couple of days, a police source said.
She suffered from multiple sclerosis and was prone to seizures.
Prior to the horrific car crash that killed a 1-year old, and a 4-year-old girl, the 45-year old girl had been instructed not to drive.
The young children were crossing the busy Pembroke Pines intersection of Ninth Street and Fifth Avenue with their friends mom when the woman struck all four of them and another person with her Volvo.
The 45-year old woman was ultimately hit with a 10-count indictment on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, reckless endangerment, assault, and reckless driving related to the crash.
She faced up to 15 years in prison.
FHP Chief of Detectives refused to comment on the contents of her suicide note at an unrelated press briefing and would only say: “There was a suicide note recovered at the scene as well as evidence of prescription pills.”
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident resulting in several serious injuries.
