Country singer Kylie Rae Harris is responsible for Wednesday's fatal car accident that killed her and a 16-year-old student, the Taos County Sheriff's Office reports.
The investigation is currently underway. The authorities suspect that speed and alcohol played a role in the accident.
The police have identified local high school student Maria Elena Cruz as the second victim in the three-vehicle crash.
Harris has a history of driving under the influence. In 2017, Harris was convicted of driving while intoxicated and ordered to install an ignition interlock device on her vehicle.
Both families have set up Go Fund Me’s. Friends of Harris have set one up to create a college fund for her 6 year old daughter. A family friend of the Cruz family created one to help assist the family.
