Jaydrian Montana Ledbetter, who is only 20 years old, was the driving the car that crashed on Barnardsville Highway in Asheville earlier this year. The crash caused the death of her 1 year old infant and seriously injured another passenger. A state trooper suspects that the 20 year old driver might have been impaired by methamphetamine while she was behind the wheel.

District Attorney Lily Lopez was successful in requesting stricter pre-trial conditions for Ledbetter. District Court Judge Patricia Brown was in agreement and ordered Ledbetter to undergo drug rehabilitation. The judge has also prohibited Ledbetter from leaving the county and has enforced an 8 am – 8 pm curfew on her. She probably is not even allowed to leave the state or the county for that matter as well.
Prior to the accident that claimed the life of her baby, Ledbetter was already facing charges that she had picked up in the summer for breaking and entering, larceny, possession of methamphetamines, and possession of drug paraphernalia. According to her accident attorney, she now faces charges of felony death by vehicle and felony serious injury by vehicle that can carry a collective sentence of up to 22 years in prison.
