A blood test shows Adrianna Young was high on marijuana when she crashed into a Rt. 58 home in Amherst Township earlier this summer, killing 34-year-old mother of two Debra Majkut.

Young, 23, of Oberlin, had 112.9 ng/ml of the drug in her blood stream, according to toxicology results provided Monday by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

That’s more than twice the per se limit under which marijuana use can be prosecuted in Ohio.

Lt. C.M. Smith said charges against Young are pending further investigation.

Just after 7:48 a.m. on July 28, she drove a 2002 Toyota Camry off the road, across a field, and into a home just south of the Rt. 113. The sedan ramped off a basement doorway and launched into the air, coming to a rest fully inside the house.

Majkut and her five-month-old son, Jaxon, were pinned underneath.

The child was rescued and flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, where he remains in stable condition while being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the OSHP.

Majkut did not survive.

Young told investigators she swerved to avoid an animal in the road. She suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Donations are still being accepted to the Debra Majkut Memorial account at www.gofundme.com/majkutmemorial. As of Monday, 189 people had given $9,520 to cover funeral and medical costs.

“As any of us spend family time together with our loved ones, cherishing those calm moments in the morning when the baby first wakes up and children are playing, we can’t imagine a horrific tragedy like this, when someone is taken so violently, and instantly in an accident,” wrote family friend Jessica Sanders, who set up the memorial account.
