Charges have yet to be filed by the Alameda County District Attorney's Office against Galt resident Megan Emslander, 20, in an August vehicle accident that killed her sister. She was arrested shortly after the accident after police suspected her of driving under the influence, but released.
Samantha Emslander, 22, also of Galt, was a passenger in a Chrysler convertible driven by Megan Emslander early Aug. 18 when it drifted off of northbound Interstate 680 in the Bay Area, went down an embankment and landed in a concrete ditch.
Megan Emslander was treated for minor injuries. She reportedly told officers arriving on scene that she had fallen asleep at the wheel of the car.
The accident is still under investigation, according to the D.A.'s office.
Meanwhile, a private memorial service for Samantha Emslander is scheduled for this weekend at Travis Air Force Base, where she was enlisted.
The family has lived Galt since 1999, and Samantha Emslander graduated from Galt High School in 2007.
She was employed by the Sacramento River Cats, enjoyed zumba, fitness and health, and had an interest in kinesiology, according to her obituary.
She was enrolled at Cosumnes River College and Sacramento City College, working toward a degree in the health and fitness field.
