Written by

KINGFIELD - A Kingfield woman was arrested Friday in connection with a deadly crash last month.

The Franklin County Sheriff's Office said it believes that Danielle Larochelle was intoxicated when she crashed on West Kingfield Road on July 8.

 

Nicholas Shurtleff, 25, of Strong was killed when he was thrown from her vehicle.

 

Deputies originally reported that Larochelle lost control after swerving to avoid a deer. They since have determined that her blood alcohol level was above the legal limit and charged her Friday with felony operating under the influence.
