A 30-year old Fort Pierce Woman wasn’t supposed to be driving the day she rammed into the back of a SUV, causing an accident that claimed the lives of two young sisters, Florida Highway Patrol officials said.
“Her license was suspended,” a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman said.
According to two sources, the 30-year old’s license had been suspended because of a high number of traffic violations. She had also been arrested once for driving with a suspended license.
She has been charged with two counts of manslaughter, four counts of endangering a child, one count of aggravated assault and one count of tampering with evidence in connection with a car accident that a killed five-year-old girl and a nine-month-old toddler and injuring their mother.
The 30-year old is accused of texting and using Facebook while driving.
The mother of the victims has reportedly been released from the hospital and is continuing to recover at home.
A memorial service for the girls killed in the crash will be held at Wellington Church of Palm Beach County.
The 30-year old was later released from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $160,000 bond.
