Police Announce What They Recovered From Car Crash That Killed Mom, Left Baby Alive

Police in Spanish Fork, Utah, say they found drugs inside the car involved in the fatal crash that took the life of a young mom but ultimately spared her baby.

The world first learned about the fatal crash that killed 25-year-old Jennifer Groesbeck because of the incredible circumstances of her 18-month-old daughter Lily's survival. The baby miraculously sat in the overturned vehicle in the Spanish Fork River for 14 hours before a fisherman discovered her and called police.

KUTV reports that after an investigation, police say they found drug paraphernalia inside the car and are investigating the findings. The police report allegedly notes that investigators found a small bag of marijuana, an unmarked pill bottle containing what is believed to be Tramadol, and an unopened syringe. Tramadol is a narcotic-like pain reliever used to alleviate moderate to severe pain in adults.

“There was a small baggie of marijuana located  in the vehicle, and then there was also a syringe in a package, it had been packaged, it was an unused syringe,” Lt. Matt Johnson of the Spanish Fork Police Department said, according to Fox 13 Now. “Those items were found in the car, but if the blood comes back to indicate what was in her system, that’s what we’re waiting for, those results to verify.”

Johnson noted that the results of a blood test could take up to six weeks. According to reports, Groesbeck’s father says she was prescribed drugs for anxiety, but he wasn’t aware of any illegal drug use.

After being found alive, 18-month-old Lily was in critical condition at a hospital but has since been released.
