The passengers told a Montana Highway Patrol trooper that Ray was texting and speeding while driving on the gravel road. She was causing the vehicle to fishtail when she lost control and crashed, the passengers said. The group was smoking marijuana, and just before the crash Ray told her passengers, “Hey guys, watch this,” court records state.
Ray initially told the trooper that the crash happened because a rear wheel fell off.
