A 43-year-old woman was charged with a DUI after a car accident that killed a 42-year-old man. On Nov. 24, police officers accused the woman of driving while intoxicated when the vehicle she was in crashed into a guardrail along an Oregon roadway. Around 2:45 a.m., the vehicle rolled over several times down an embankment before it landed in a body of water. Law enforcement officials allege that the passenger was thrown from the vehicle at some point after the initial impact.
The woman who was allegedly driving the vehicle was accused of losing control of the car while speeding. The police report says that speed and alcohol were both factors in the crash. The male passenger was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Police charged the woman with DUI and second degree manslaughter after they received a .13 percent BAC result on an unspecified test.
