Driver Charged in Crash that Killed 148th Fighter Wing Member

The woman who collided with a member of the 148th Fighter Wing back in May of 2021 has been charged with vehicular homicide.

The criminal complaint said 21-year-old Tabitha Sigler of Cambridge was traveling south on I35 near Hinckley when she crossed the median and struck Master Sgt. David T. Greiner, who was traveling north. Greiner was declared dead at the scene.

According to the complaint, responders located a butane torch, digital scale, and white powdery resident that tested positive for methamphetamine in the debris near the suspect's vehicle. A partially empty bottle of whiskey inside was discovered inside her vehicle.

A white cosmetic case with burn marks, consistent with a hot glass pipe used to smoke methamphetamine, was also located by law enforcement.

Sigler told responders that she had lost control of the vehicle and did not remember anything else.

A blood sample taken from Sigler tested positive for THC, amphetamine, and methamphetamine.

A reconstruction of the crash by the Minnesota State Patrol determined that Sigler's vehicle crossed four lanes of traffic to collide with Greiner's vehicle. Evidence collected indicated that she failed to brake or steer as her vehicle struck the median and went airborne at 60 mph before landing and rolling into the victim's car.

Investigators say there was no evidence that Griener attempted to brake or steer after he was struck by the suspect. They believe that he was killed upon impact by Sigler's vehicle.

The toxicology of the victim's blood was negative of alcohol or controlled substances.

Sigler is facing one felony count of criminal vehicular homicide while under the influence of a schedule 1 or 2 controlled substance. The maximum sentence she could face is ten years in prison and/or a $20,000 fine.
