ADDY, Wash. – The Washington State Patrol said it could be weeks before they decide which charges, if any, to recommend against a Colville woman accused of causing a car crash that killed a 13-month-old girl last week.

Authorities from the State Patrol said the driver claimed she did not see the car in front her trying to turn off the highway until it was too late.

The State Patrol, which identified the driver as a 35-year-old Colville woman returning home after a college class in Spokane, said she was going approximately 60 miles per hour when she rear-ended a car just south of Addy.

Jenie Jones was trying to turn into a church parking lot when her Mercury Sable was rear-ended, according to a State Patrol accident report.

Jones was airlifted by MedStar to a Spokane hospital along with her 1-year-old daughter, Jalah. The infant died Saturday morning.

Jones is expected to remain in the hospital for several days. Her 3-year-old was treated and released from a nearby hospital.

Troopers say they have no reason at this point to believe the Colville woman was under the influence or drugs or alcohol, and they are listing the cause of the crash as "inattention."

No criminal charges have been filed yet. Troopers plan to spend the next few weeks reconstructing the scene on Highway 395.

Technicians spent several hours taking measurements on the highway on Friday. Authorities closed the road between two and eight o'clock last Friday.

Troopers said everyone was wearing their seatbelt and the two children appeared to be properly restrained in car seats appropriate for their age and weight.
