ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — A Sacramento State associate professor faces a manslaughter charge after crashing into a couple in Roseville on Tuesday.
Jordan Tonya Louise Peters, 45, is accused of driving while drunk and on drugs when she crashed on Pleasant Grove Boulevard near Roseville Parkway, Roseville police said.
Robert Allen Weaver, 69, a passenger in one of the cars, was killed in the chain-reaction accident. His wife is in the hospital.
News of the professor’s involvement in the accident shocked the campus where she teaches business and labor law.
“The professors here at Sac State are excellent and highly valued, and I’m very sorry to hear that this happened, said student Tia Kilpatrick. “It’s actually really surprising to me that that happened to one of the professors on campus.”
