Court documents reveal new details on what Redding Police say happened the hours before a suspected drunk driver slammed into the back of a car and killed two people.

It happened at the intersection of Churn Creek Road and Hartnell Avenue in Redding the morning of November 3 .

Police say 25-year-old Kendra Anderson-Schweigerl of Redding was speeding southbound on Churn Creek Road and when she rear ended a Toyota Corolla carrying five people as they waited for the light to turn green.

19-year-old Erica Young of Hoopa and 18-year-old Wa-Rec Lacy Mae Jackson of Redding were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say Anderson-Schweigerl was working at Red Robin in Redding the night before and clocked out at around 9:15.

Management told police she'd had a bad day and had expressed wanting to blow off some steam.

She then met fellow coworker Brandon Sergeef at Shameless O'Leery's in Downtown Redding around 10 PM.

Sergeef said Anderson-Schweigerl told him she had already been drinking in her car prior to getting to the bar.

He said said she had been crying and had family issues.

Another friend, John Fadden met up with Anderson-Schweigerl at the bar and said she'd had about three beers and a shot while at O'Leery's

Anderson-Schweigerl later went to The Rusty Nail bar at the Mt. Shasta Mall where she reportedly had two more beers and a shot.

When they left, Fadden said he noticed Anderson-Schweigerl acting a little off, so he offered to drive her home.

But she told him she was ok to drive.

Fadden sais he was supposed to meet Anderson-schweigerl at her home, but she never showed.

Anderson-Schweigerl has entered a plea of not-guilty.

‎She’s due back in court December 29 for a bail hearing.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled January 30.

It wasn't as hot for northern California today, but temperatures still reached seasonable summer levels and more thunderstorms sprung over our eastern counties. After one more seasonable day, hotter weather will return to our area.
