By Katie MettlerIGN|Posted Mar 07, 2017 08:48:27A woman in a wheelchair, who was also the sole survivor of the accident, is on trial for manslaughter for killing her sister and then trying to cover it up.
Theresa Lee, 58, died in her hospital bed on Feb. 2, 2018, after a car collided with her.
It was her sister’s 14th birthday.
Lee’s lawyer told the judge that she was not drunk or high on drugs when she drove her car into Lee’s apartment complex and then tried to cover up the accident.
Lee was driving a 2009 Honda Accord when she was pulled over on Interstate 95 for failing to signal.
She was taken to a hospital, where she was treated for severe head injuries.
But she died of her injuries after the paramedics arrived at the scene.
Lee had been out of work for a year and was employed by a company that had been awarded a $2 million award from the Department of Labor in her case.
Lee is also being tried in absentia on a charge of driving under the influence of drugs.
Lee, who lives in Florida, pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter charge.
The judge was not told whether she had any previous criminal history, although she had been convicted of driving while intoxicated in a state other than Florida.
