Buchanan was is accused of slamming into the back of a minivan while driving her pickup down I-20 in Abilene in March 2018, killing van passengers Melissa Grace and Starla Lindley, ages 14 and 11, upon impact.

Court documents state investigators arrived on scene and found Melissa Grace and Starla already deceased.

Buchanan was identified as the driver of the truck, and a search warrant executed on her phone revealed, “that at the time of the crash, Buchanan was actively using the Chick-fil-A application,” according to the documents.

Callahan County Jail officials say Buchanan was released from jail after posting a $20,000 bond.
