Family of NY wrong-way driver may seek new tests

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — An investigator for the family of wrong-way driver Diane Schuler says he may seek new tests of her blood.

Schuler killed herself, her daughter, three nieces and three men in another vehicle in a crash last month on the Taconic (tuh-KAH'-nihk) Parkway. Toxicology tests found she was drunk and high on marijuana.

But investigator Thomas Ruskin said Friday that interviews with many people who knew Schuler have found no one who ever saw her drunk. He said her husband, Daniel Schuler, is certain the medical examiner's conclusion is wrong.

Ruskin said he will have forensic experts go over the autopsy report before deciding on a next step.

But Ruskin says he may request that untested blood samples be tested even if the report supports the original results.
