Driver in California Plunge That Killed Family Was Drunk, Officials Say

Opelousas family loses home in early morning storms

Additionally, Carpenter said Jennifer Hart's wife, Sarah, and two of the three children found dead at the scene had a positive toxicology finding in their blood for diphenhydramine, an active ingredient in Benadryl.

Farther south along the Mendocino County coast, authorities proceed to find associates of the Hart household, overlooking past 42, since an SUV left a dip away a towering sea bluff.

Rescue efforts have turned into search and recovery efforts after a Southern California family disappeared in Mendocino County while driving to visit relatives in the Bay Area.

Photo The Harts' vehicle was recovered off Highway 1, near Westport, Calif., on March 26.

The Harts moved last spring to Woodland, Washington, telling their real-estate broker "they needed a fresh start" after experiencing prejudice in Minnesota and too much media attention in OR after one child was pictured in a viral photo taken at a 2014 police-brutality protest. Toxicology results on a third child whose body was recovered from the crash area are still pending.

Investigators are now examining "red flags" in the Washington family's past in the hope of explaining why they drove off the cliff in an apparent suicide plunge.

Sarah and Jennifer Hart and their six adopted children were believed to be in the family's SUV when it plunged off a cliff in Mendocino County, more than 160 miles (250 kilometers) north of San Francisco. A family of eight died in that crash, which authorities believe was deliberate based on data recovered from the vehicle's software. The family lived in Woodland, Washington, near Portland, Oregon, and were reportedly on a road trip, though Child Protective Services had been trying to reach them for days.

The specific level was.10%, Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman said.

Investigators are using DNA analysis to determine if a body found near the site of the crash this week is one of the missing children.

The 100-foot drop killed the women, both 39, and their children Markis Hart, 19; Jeremiah Hart, 14; and Abigail Hart, 14.

The shoreline searches conducted on 04-12-2018 by patrol deputies were unsuccessful in locating any of the missing children (Hannah Hart, DeVonte Hart and Sierra Hart) or physical evidence associated with this investigation.

Two more are missing and another body has been found but not identified.

Sarah Hart reportedly also had diphenhydramine in her system.

And authorities have said social services officials in OR contacted the West Linn Police Department about the family in 2013 while they were living in the area.
