Got yellow sport car hours before the crash
Detectives from the Montgomery County Department of Police in a Thursday release said officers responded to the scene at around 6.37pm upon receiving report of a serious collision.
Vasquez had been traveling along Muddy Branch Road when she collided with the Accord as it tried to turn left onto eastbound West Deer Park Road.
Authorities believe that Vasquez had been speeding, which contributed to the collision. Three unoccupied parked vehicles were also damaged in the collision.
According to Vasquez friends, social media, she got the car hours before the crash.
Had been scheduled to appear in court to face prior DUI & gun possession charges
The fatal multi-collision comes a month after Vasquez had been stopped in the early morning hours of August 2 when she was observed driving recklessly in Silver Spring.
After failing a field sobriety test, police discovered that she had a handgun in her glove department.
The mother was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, transporting a loaded handgun in a vehicle, and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person. Vasquez had been prohibited from possessing a firearm because of a prior criminal conviction, according to a release from Montgomery County Police.
Vasquez was due to appear in court on Friday to face those charges.
