Wife faces DWI count; husband died in crash

ASHLEY SLOBODA | The Journal Gazette

A 28-year-old Yoder woman faces a felony drunken driving charge in connection to a weekend crash that killed her husband, court records said.

A blood sample taken at Lutheran Hospital a few hours after the Saturday afternoon crash showed Kaycee A. Reed's blood-alcohol content was 0.11%, according to a probable cause affidavit filed Monday.

The legal limit is 0.08%.

Reed, who is also known by the last name of Lahey, was the driver of a car that left the road, struck a pole and rolled over in the 5700 block of Lower Huntington Road, west of Anoka Drive, authorities have said.

Her spouse, Corbin J. Reed, 28, was a passenger in the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at a hospital, authorities have said.

The Allen County coroner determined Corbin Reed died accidentally from multiple blunt force injuries because of a motor vehicle crash. His death was the third in motor vehicle crashes this year.

Kaycee Reed, who was pinned in the crash, admitted to being the driver, court documents said. The records indicated she was unable to perform a standardized field sobriety test because she was bedridden.

She faces a charge of causing death when operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
