Three years later, driver of deadly Halloween crash arraigned

Posted: Updated:

The woman who struck and killed a Westfield mother and her son while they were trick-or-treating has been arraigned, three years after the accident.

Anne Schlichtig, 26, faces two counts of negligent motor vehicular homicide.

Westfield Police say the victim, Roberta Salois, was not in a cross walk when she crossed South Maple Street with her son.

After the accident, Schlichtig admitted to witnesses on scene that she shouldn't have been driving at night because of a medical condition. Investigators found she suffers from an eye conditions that affect the cornea.

And that was enough evidence to bring charges against her. Schlichtig has been released on her own personal recognizance pending a hearing in December.
