Family defends

Makes Statement

Chambers’ father defends her.

Adacia is a kind, loving, caring person, and she wouldn’t have done this purposefully…I’m not going to believe that [she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol] until they show me proof. I know the little girl I raised wouldn’t have done something like this intentionally. I raised my kids to be Christian people and to keep family and God close to their heart. Our hearts go out to those victims. It is a terrible, terrible thing that this happened. I wouldn’t wish this upon anybody. And I can’t undo it

Her aunt:

This is not her character. She’s one that’ll give you big hug, and she’s one that if you’re down she’ll make you smile. That’s my Adacia. We don’t know what happened.

Live-in boyfriend, Jesse Gaylord says Chambers had trouble sleeping.

For her to purposefully go and do something like that would just not be possible. She’s one of the kindest, [most] soft-spoken people you’ll ever meet…There’s no way she was drunk or impaired. She’s just not that kind of person…She’s honestly one of the most cautious drivers that I’ve ever ridden with. She doesn’t run yellow lights.

Lawyer: May have mental illness

Makes Statement

Chambers’ attorney says she may be suffering from a mental illness, saying that there were warning signs from her behavior before the crash, including an inability to sleep. He also says that she did not smell of alcohol when he met her hours after the crash, and that that he had spoken to her aunt, grandmother and boyfriend and all had said she was not drinking. He says Chambers only recalls people removing her from the car and being extremely confused. Police are waiting on the result of blood tests.

I absolutely can rule out alcohol…She doesn’t remember a whole lot about what happened. There was a period where I think … she could have even blacked out.
