Prosecutors allege Kapri Raven Coleman’s blood-alcohol content measured .16 percent — twice the legal driving limit in California

Kapri Raven Coleman is accused in last Wednesday’s crash, in which the California Highway Patrol said her 2009 Hyundai Genesis veered off northbound I-15 shortly before 2:30 a.m.

The sedan overturned and tumbled down an embankment, ejecting two of Coleman’s daughters, ages 5 and 3. The older girl died at the scene.

Paramedics airlifted the younger girl and her 1-year-old brother, who was belted into a child passenger restraint seat, to Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, where they were admitted in critical condition, according to CHP Officer Juan Escobar.
