California woman who drove family off cliff was drunk: sheriff

Kahauiki Village

Sandeep and Soumya Thottapilly - along with their children Siddhant, 12, and Saachi, 9 - had been driving from Portland, Oregon, to their home in Santa Clarita, California, north of Los Angeles, according to the San Jose Police Department.

The Klamath River and also a string of country and federal redwood parks lie to the north of where in fact the vehicle saw falling in the Eel River along Highway 101.

"Our results make it clear that schools have a really hard task ahead of them when it comes to reducing the gaps between low and high achieving children", she said.

The SUV pulled onto a gravel turnout during a severe rainstorm, but parked too close to the river on the soft shoulder, and the ground gave way, according to the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.

Five bodies were found March 26 near the small city of Mendocino, a few days after Washington state authorities began investigating the Harts for possible child neglect, but three of their children were not immediately recovered from the scene.

On Tuesday and Wednesday the searchers combed the riverbanks and located the personal items, which were identified as belonging to the Tottapillys by family members.

"By Year 3, children with four or more highly educated family members - that is, both parents and grandparents - were about one year ahead of children with two or three highly educated family members, parents only, and two years ahead of children without any highly-qualified family members".

Authorities were looking into whether the family was linked to a vehicle that went into the Eel River in Mendocino County on April 6, when a massive storm hit Northern California. The search teams were able to cover approximately 12 miles of river bank by foot and 60 miles by helicopter.

Authorities also found personal items that were consistent with a family traveling on vacation.

The California Highway Patrol has also said the crash is thought to have been intentional. "Several items have been positively identified, by the family members, as belonging to the Thottapilly family", it said.

Officials later learned it matched the description of the Thottapilly's maroon Honda Pilot.
