Three days after an Interstate 8 crash that killed two people, an El Cajon woman accused of driving under the influence will be released without charges while the investigation continues into what happened.
Shortly before Sunny Hall was scheduled to be arraigned, prosecutors canceled the hearing and told NBCSanDiego Hall would likely be released from the Las Colinas Detention Facility before the end of the day.
Angela Cherene August, 25, of Alpine and veteran teacher Jimmy Arrevalo, 59, of El Centro were killed in the crash on I-8 near Tavern Road just before 3 a.m. Monday.
After August’s vehicle rolled over and pinned her inside, Arrevalo stopped his pickup and got out to help according to the California Highway Patrol.
Soon after, Hall approached the site of the rollover in the eastbound lanes of the highway. Her vehicle crashed into the two victims, killing them according to CHP investigators.
Hall, 30, suffered minor injuries in the accident and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Deputy District Attorney Doug Rose said that Hall will be released pending a charging decision. He said the investigation into the case is ongoing and they haven't gathered enough evidence to make a decision.
Hall has a criminal history in Washington state that includes two counts of forgery and one count of controlled substance. She was found guilty on all three.
