INDIANAPOLIS - The 22-year-old woman authorities said caused a fatal crash near Geist Reservoir last weekend was free on bond Tuesday.
Paige Byers was arrested after the crash that killed two people and sent another to the hospital Saturday night.
Byers was formally charged with multiple counts of operating while intoxicated causing death along with a charge of operating while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury.
David Foster, 50, and his stepdaughter Whitney Miller, 28, were both killed in the crash that happened just after 10:15 p.m. near Fall Creek Parkway and Sand Key Lane.
Byers suffered only minor injuries in the crash. Witnesses told police the Cadillac driven by Byers crossed the center line, striking the Ford Explorer with three people inside.
Miller’s father said he has already forgiven Byers.
"She's got a lot on her plate. A lot to live with for the rest of her life. She killed two people because of her bad decision. We all make bad decisions," Paul Miller said.
Whitney Miller was a single mother with four children ages 2, 4, 6 and 9.
"Any loss of life is bad, but when it involves leaving behind four small children, it's just been a terrific loss," Rev. Phil Edwards with Fortville Church of the Nazarene said.
Neighbors said Miller spent a lot of time with her children. They started circulating a flier to help raise money for Miller’s children and for funeral expenses.
Officials said Byers will likely seek alcohol treatment and has been placed on suicide watch.
