The investigation revealed that a male passenger in Grant’s vehicle started a physical fight with someone in the crash victim’s vehicle. The man was restrained by the victim until he calmed down.

The CHP arrived and arrested Grant. She was charged with a felony for driving while intoxicated and child endangerment. Grant’s sister-in-law, Elizabeth Grant was also arrested. Her charges include felony public intoxication and child endangerment due to her not properly securing her children in car seats and riding with a driver whom she knew was intoxicated.
