  • Officers say 17-year-old Alia Sierra drove her car into a house northwest of Frankfort killing two children inside

The Clinton County Sheriff's Office wants to charge the teen with criminal recklessness resulting in death because authorities believe she may have been high on opioids at the time of the crash.

The coroner identified the victims as Haleigh Fullerton, 18, and Callie Fullerton, 8. Several people were still in the vehicle, according to the sheriff's department.

A GoFundMe page set up to raise money in the sisters" honor described them as "beautiful ladies" who "touched every heart they came in contact with'. She was transported by helicopter to a nearby hospital, but her condition is unknown. The girls' father, Dennis, and an unidentified brother were not injured in the accident.

Investigators say there were three other juveniles in the vehicle at the time of the crash, treated for non-life threatening injuries at the scene. They were treated with non-life threatening injuries at the scene.

The teen was arrested and booked into a juvenile detention facility.

The Fullerton home sustained major damage in the crash, and members of their church have been looking after the property.
