PASCO, Wash. -- The woman involved in a fatal crash along Hwy. 397 in Pasco is being charged with vehicular homicide.

The crash happened Friday September 24th near Cemetery Road. Troopers say 47 year old Lori Christensen crossed the center line of the highway and crashed, head-on, into 35 year old Orlando Abarca Rivera's car.

The charges claim that Christensen either was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or the accident was caused by the "disregard of safety of others" or both. She is being held at the Franklin County Corrections Center on $350,000 bail.
