ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. – A 27-year-old wife and mother was the sole survivor of a deadly crash that claimed the life of her one-year-old son and husband.
Tragically, authorities say she has no memory of the crash or the family she lost.
Police say 75-year-old Cynthia Guthrie didn’t hit the brakes before slamming into the family’s gold Kia.
When a chaplain and family members informed Martinez about the deaths of her family, they realized that she doesn’t remember a thing.
“She was informed of the passing of her husband and her son. She does not remember the crash and, at that time, did not remember the family members either,” said Lt. Rob Pelton, with the Altamonte Springs Police Department.
They add that people almost always get their memory back.
However, it is often spontaneous.
Officials say Guthrie will not be charged unless she tests positive for illegal substances.
