A Mesa woman is facing manslaughter charges following a fatal Monday night crash. Police said Savannah Sutherland, 21, appeared to be impaired by alcohol when her 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier rear-ended a motorized scooter in the 7900 block of East Baseline Road at 10:21 p.m.

Genevieve Tepec-Juarez, 36, later died at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn hospital.

Sutherland was given a field evaluation, and police said her blood-alcohol content was 0.13. The legal limit is 0.08.

Mesa police Sgt. Chuck Trapani said Sutherland told police she had consumed four cans of beer.

Sutherland was treated for minor injuries at Banner Baywood Medical Center, then booked into a Mesa police holding facility.
