Police Make Shocking Discovery About What Mom Was Doing Minutes Before Fatal Crash

In December 2013, 34-year-old Kari Milberg was involved in a car accident that killed her daughter and two nieces. Police say cell phone records indicate the woman was active on Facebook and sending messages until two minutes before the crash. Authorities reportedly believe that distraction from driving was a significant cause of the crash. That day, Milberg was driving one of her nieces back to her sister’s house when her SUV spun out of control and into on coming traffic. A large, commercial box truck slammed into the rear of the vehicle.

In addition, Milberg was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle. Her 11-year-old daughter, Lydia, was killed on impact. Two of Milberg’s nieces — both of them 5 years old — were taken to area hospitals but later died of their injuries. Milberg, and her 3-year-old son, Easton recovered from their injuries. Mike Pavek is married to Milberg’s sister, Katy Pavek, and the father of one of the 5-year-olds killed in the accident.

Pavek said, “My mother-in-law has lost three grandchildren. The loss I've incurred is one thing, but the loss that my wife and sisters-in-law is immense and it's still ongoing." A blood report from a sample taken from Milberg showed she had therapeutic levels of oxycodone and the sedative midazolam in her system at the time of the crash. She now faces three counts of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle.
