HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A 17-year-old Helena girl faces charges for a crash in which she told investigators she blacked out after huffing canned air, ran a red light and slammed into another vehicle, leaving its 88-year-old driver hospitalized a month later.

The Independent Record reports (https://bit.ly/1cCDNiZ ) Deana Marie Evans is charged with felony criminal endangerment for the Dec. 30 crash that also sent her passenger to the hospital. She has not yet appeared in court.

Charging documents say Evans told investigators the reason she couldn’t remember anything from the crash was that she and her passenger “had each taken three hits from the can and blacked out.”

Court records say officers found a can of compressed air, a small amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Evans‘ car.
