The case against the driver charged in a wreck that killed three elderly passengers in Greene County last April has been pushed back once again.

A judge gave 44-year-old Teri Ejjamai's attorney more time to prepare evidence. Ejjamai was driving for a private transportation company at the time. She's charged with three counts of manslaughter. Blood tests show she had high levels of an anxiety drug in her system that day.

"I think the judge should stop her from driving right away until she can get herself straight with that medication because she's liable to end up killing somebody else or even herself too," said Marie Thacker whose mother died in the crash.

Ejjamai is expected to enter a plea on April 18.
