Posted: Updated:

WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) On Tuesday, deputies responded to a possible wreck on I-75. The investigation led to two arrests.

A Chevy Cobalt was found near the northbound 8 mile marker. Deputies say the passenger side was damaged and the front right wheel rim was in contact with the payment.

Deputies say that the driver, 38-year-old Crystal Miller of Cumberland, told the deputy that the car had overheated. The deputy said he smelled the strong odor of alcoholic beverages and saw a bottle of vodka. She told the deputy that she was returning from Indiana. 

An 8-year-old sat in the front passenger seat and in the back seat was 44-year-old Terry Sibrava, of Cumberland.

The deputy says he found a mixed drink in a cup and three bottles of liquor. 

Miller eventually admitted to colliding with the back of a tractor trailer.The deputy said he found what is believed to be marijuana in the door compartment where Sibrava was seated.

Miller was arrested for the felony offense of first-degree wanton endangerment and endangering the welfare of a minor. She was also charged with DUI and possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle. Miller’s DUI charge includes an aggravating factor, which was having a child under 12-years-old in the vehicle. Sibrava was arrested for endangering the welfare of a minor, possession of marijuana, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

Both were lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center. Social Services responded, and the child was released to the care of a family member.
