Police: Taconic driver was seen vomiting
Diane Schuler was twice seen vomiting on the side of the road before the fatal Taconic State Parkway collision that killed eight, police reports say.
According to the reports, Schuler stopped her van twice in the morning to throw up on July 26. Police say Schuler, who was traveling the wrong way on the Taconic, later plowed into a car carrying three Yonkers men, killing herself, her daughter, three nieces and the men.
The reports also reveal that Diane Schuler's sister-in-law, Joan, told police the Long Island mother would smoke marijuana on a regular basis to relieve stress because she didn't believe in going to the doctor.
