Ohio Driver Who Crashed Into Home Tests Positive For Marijuana

A 23-year-old driver who crashed into an Ohio home has tested positive for marijuana, Fox 8 reports. The accident, which occurred in late July, resulted in the death of 34-year-old Debra Majkut and injuries to her young child. Both Majkut and her infant were in the living room when Adrianna Young drove her 2002 Toyota Camry into the building. According to WKYC, the infant was announced to be in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries soon after the accident. Majkut was pronounced dead at the scene.

The details as to what caused Young to crash her car have yet to be revealed. She also has yet to face any criminal charges, although Fox 8 reports the Ohio State Highway Patrol is investigating the incident. It is unclear whether Young was under the influence of marijuana at the time of the crash, or whether she simply tested positive for use of the drug. It is also unclear how the drug test will be involved in the criminal investigation. According to News Net 5, however, Young has one OVI (Operating a Vehicle Impaired) arrest on her record, as well as charges for marijuana possession, theft, speeding and driving without a valid license. She was also not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision.

he issue of marijuana will be on the minds of Ohioans moving into the election year, as a constitutional amendment to legalize the drug will be on the ballot. If it passes, Ohio will become the first Midwestern state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. If that happens, questions as to how to deal with situations such as the one Young faces will only grow increasingly complex.
