UPDATE: Due to Caitlin R. Frost’s alleged admission of drug use prior to the accident, she was evaluated by a drug recognition expert and consented to providing a blood sample for further analysis; results are pending.

There also is evidence of distracted-driving being a factor in this case.

Frost was charged with second-degree vehicular manslaughter, driving while ability impaired by drugs, driving with a suspended license and failure to keep right.

Frost was arraigned by Judge Finocchiaro and remanded to the Madison County Jail on $10,000 cash bail, $20,000 bail bond or $40,000 partially secured bond; she is scheduled to return to Sullivan Town Court April 13, 2021.

The investigation continues.
