She drove for more than two miles with the dying man on the hood of her car. Once the woman stopped driving, witnesses surrounded her vehicle and confiscated her keys until officers arrived on the scene. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

The woman has been charged with murder gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI Causing Injury and Leaving the Scene of an Accident. If convicted, she faces up to life in prison.
