UPDATE: A 26-year-old Bergen Community College psychology professor who was killed after she crashed a stolen SUV while driving the wrong way on a Middlesex County highway had taken Adderall or similar ADHD medication before her death, according to a published report.

Ashley Sara Chieco, 26, had a blood-alcohol level of .189 – more than double the legal limit – at the time of her autopsy, as CLIFFVIEW PILOT previously reported. However, blood tests also showed that her blood “was positive for Adderall or similar medication used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder,” Nj.com is reporting.
