Six people died in an accident on February 9 caused by an allegedly drunk driver who drove the wrong way on the 60 Freeway. On July 17, the 21-year-old woman facing charges in the case was arraigned after multiple delays. Some of the delays were due to medical reasons because the woman had been seriously injured in the crash. She now faces six counts of murder.
Not long before the crash occurred, the California Highway Patrol began receiving reports that a car was traveling the wrong way on the 57 Freeway and then the 60 Freeway. The woman, who was driving a Chevrolet Camaro, hit a Ford Explorer head-on. The woman's two passengers and the four people in the Explorer died.
