A 34-year-old woman is being accused of a DUI and gross vehicular manslaughter after causing a drunken collision that killed two pedestrians and her fiance. She was critically injured in a collision which happened August 13. The judge will determine if there is enough evidence to proceed with a trail. According to the Deputy District Attorney, her BAC was at .24 percent, over four times the legal limit. She did not have a valid driver’s license, as well.
According to news reports, the crash happened when a Nissan Altima pulled to the side of the road because a passenger was not feeling well. The driver and two passengers stepped outside the vehicle when an oncoming Jeep Cherokee hit the Altima, killing two of the women. After the crash, the Cherokee skidded and overturned, ejecting her fiance from the vehicle. If convicted, the defendant faces 16 years in prison.
