A Houston woman has been charged with murder after causing a five-vehicle accident.
Arnesia Washington is being charged with felony murder for the wreck that shut down the West Loop near Evergreen for hours. The woman has been charged in this manner because, according to investigators, she was intoxicated and had two children with her at the time of the accident.
According to prosecutors, this major accident was not the first wreck that Washington was involved in on Saturday. Washington was apparently also involved in two other minor hit-and-runs before the major fatal accident.
One of the victims in the previous accidents was following Washington in order to exchange information with her and became a witness to the fatal accident that happened.
According to police, Washington attempted to flee the scene of the accident, but was blocked in by the drivers who were involved in the earlier accidents.
