ATLANTA (AP) — Investigators said the driver in a Hall County crash that killed five people tested positive for methamphetamine and other drugs.

Amanda Lynn Pardue of Gainesville was driving a Ford Explorer on Georgia Highway 11 on June 30 when she crossed a median, drove into oncoming traffic and struck a tractor-trailer.

Pardue, her 8-year-old daughter, her 2-year-old son and two other people died from injuries they received in the wreck.

A report from the Georgia State Patrol said Pardue tested positive for methamphetamine, amphetamine and other drugs. It did not elaborate on what other drugs were detected.

A cousin of Pardue's previously said that Pardue was on medication for epilepsy and severe back pain.
