Woman Had Xanax, Beer Before Fatal Wreck
(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A dancer who told police she had two beers and Xanax before leaving work at a local strip club is charged with DUI death in a crash early Saturday morning in Chinatown that killed a man.
Shauna Miller, 26, was described in a police report as glassy-eyed and smelling of alcohol after the collision at Spring Mountain and Wynn around 7:30am Saturday. Miller was driving a Hummer that collided with a Ford Escort driven by 32 year old James White, who died at the scene. A two year old child in White’s car was treated for minor injuries at a hospital.
The police report says Miller failed field sobriety tests at the scene. She had told police she had consumed Xanax earlier the previous night and had two beers during her time working at the strip club overnight, the last being about 3 hours before the accident. Police say Miller gave an account of the collision that does not square with their investigation at the scene, nor a witness account from another driver.
