A 42-year-old suburban West Palm Beach woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with a wrong-way crash west of the city that killed a Royal Palm Beach man in June, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
Dina Brown is facing multiple charges, including DUI manslaughter, vehicular homicide, DUI causing serious bodily injury and reckless driving causing bodily injury. She was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail late Wednesday and is expected to make her first appearance before a judge today.
The crash happened just before 2 a.m. June 11 in the 2700 block of Westgate Avenue, south of Okeechobee Boulevard and west of Congress Avenue.
Authorities say Brown was driving on the wrong side of the road when her 2013 Kia Sedan collided with a Toyota pickup driven by James Grinder, 36, killing Grinder instantly.
Brown and her passenger, 10-year-old Nyaja Brown, suffered serious injuries.
A judge ordered Thursday morning Brown be held on a $100,000 bond and be placed on in-house arrest if released.
