DARIEN - Newly released court records show the woman accused in a fatal I-95 crash in Darien last month failed a field sobriety test.

The records show Candice Blanks, 39, of Stamford, failed the field test after she struck and killed two men changing a flat tire. The eight-page search warrant shows that police attempted to give her a Breathalyzer test, but didn't have a working Breathalyzer.

Troopers say when she was brought to the state police barracks, Blanks smelled of alcohol and was experiencing mood swings. They say she even asked to call her dog at home.

Friends of the two victims, Lucas Silva and Felipe Chagas, as well as an attorney for one of the families, did not want to comment on the report.
