San Francisco – A state woman in the Washington state has exceeded California's law limit when she ran an SUV with her partner and six children withinalong Highway 1 last year a forensic pathologist testified Wednesday. Dr. Greg Pizarro was among the witnesses one of a two-day champion feasibility study to determine whether Jennifer's and Sarah Hart's death and their six adopted children were random, suicide or indefinite.
The 100-foot drop of March 26, 2018 killed the two women from Woodland, Washington and their children Marquis Hart, 1
Pizarro told the jury thatwas .102 at the crash – well above California's 0.08. He also testified that Sarah Hard had a high level of benedryl in her bloodstream at the time of her death. He added that it was not the cause of her death, but nourished toxic levels.
"Her levels of benedryl were really high," Pizarro said.
The forensic expert said Jennifer Hart died of "several dumb cancer injuries" and was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash. Sarah Hart also suffered several injuries and probably did not wear his seat belt as the SUV dropped out of the rock.
Jared Chaney, the search and rescue coordinator of the Mendocino County Sheriff's Department, described the intense search that was launched to recover all the organs.
Initially, Chaney testified that deputies were hoping to find someone alive, but the search became more difficult because the rock bottom was not readily available and the SUV had come to rest in the surf.
"We found a lot of liquid waste coming up on land," he told the jury.
When the days went by, friends of the Hart family began to help the search, said chaney Hannah Hart's foot was found weeks later by a hiker's dog on a beach a way from the crash scene.
Meanwhile, Mendocino County Sheriff Substitute Robert Julian told the preliminary investigation jury that the women's bodies were inside the car and that it was being pulled up the cliff.
"The vehicle was brought straight up and turned on its roof so it was unfortunately more damaged," says Julian according to CBS affiliate KOIN TV. "And then I saw one of the decedents who were in the driver's seat, dropped off the vehicle with a bag."
Julian says he was able to identify Sarah Hart through a Minnesota driver's license found near the car. He says he could not immediately identify Jennifer Hart because of her fall.
Known as Hart Tribe, the multiracial family of two married women – Sarah and Jennifer Hart – and six adopted children took spontaneous weather trips to camp and hike and traveled to festivals and other events that gave hug and promote unity.
One of the children Devonte Hart drew national attention when the black kid wasduring a 2014 protest in Portland, Oregon, over the deadly police Missouri. Devonte had a "Free Hug" sign.
A neighbor to Hart in Woodland, Washington, had filed a complaint with the state and said the children were apparently deprived of food as a punishment. No one answered when social workers who controlled the report went to the family home near Portland, Oregon, March 23.
Sarah Hart pleaded guilty in 2011 to a domestic assault charge in Minnesota over what she said was a spanking given to one of her children. Oregon Child Employment officials also examined the couple in 2013, but closed the case without intervening.
