Impaired While Behind The Wheel

A Saint Johns woman was charged Tuesday with DUI-manslaughter accident that left Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office bailiff Cathy Lynn Adams dead.  It also left her husband injured.  His name is Officer William Jack Adams, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Kim Michelle Johnston of Comanche Trail Boulevard was booked on $125,000 bail, according to St. Johns County jail records. She previously was charged with two counts of DUI with serious bodily injury in the crash.

William Adams, 50, and wife Cathy, 43, were taken to the hospital in critical condition the night of the crash that also left their 14-year-old son and 16-year-old daughter with minor injuries, the Highway Patrol said. They were returning home I-95 from the Mandarin vs. Miami Columbus state championship high school football game. All four had been wearing their seat belts, the Highway Patrol said.

Johnston, who also was wearing her seat belt, wasn’t injured in the crash, officials said.
