Police believe 35-year-old Samantha Jo Petersen crashed her car into a horse-drawn carriage in Minnesota on September 25 last year while under the influence of drugs.

The accident led to the death of two children inside the horse-drawn carriage, while two other children were seriously injured and required treatment in the hospital.

In the aftermath of the accident, the woman's twin sister, Sarah Beth Petersen, must have tried to take the blame for the accident, according to police.

Chased by the FBI

-I'm not sober

The sisters were at the scene when emergency services arrived, she wrote Sky News.

The issue is also discussed before The Wall Street Journal.

According to Sky News, the twin who caused the accident called her employer and said she was in “problem” after colliding with “an Amish vehicle, killing two people.”

The Amish are a group of Christians who live in traditional agricultural societies, where horse-drawn carriages are a widespread means of transportation.

– I'm not sober, Samantha Jo Petersen is said to have admitted as much in the conversation.

He must appear in court

Furthermore, the investigation uncovered several revealing Google searches when going through her phone, including how to lock the phone in case the police got hold of it.

Samantha Jo Petersen is now charged with vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of a crime, and is due back in court on March 25. Sister Sarah Beth is accused of complicity and attempting to take responsibility for a crime committed by someone else.
