Arraignment for mother charged in deadly DUI crash

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - A woman accused of driving under the influence of drugs and crashing into a power pole, killing her 3-year-old daughter and seriously injuring two other children, was charged Wednesday with gross vehicular manslaughter and other counts.

Brandy Teague, 31, was also charged with DUI with injury, child endangerment, driving on a suspended license and methamphetamine possession. She was expected to be arraigned Wednesday, but the hearing was postponed until at least Thursday in El Cajon.

According to police, Teague may have fallen asleep moments before her 2010 Hyundai Accent veered off Broadway between First and Second streets about 9:45 p.m. Saturday.

Teague's three children -- ages 2, 3, and 10 -- were badly hurt and taken to Rady Children's Hospital. Three-year-old Carlee Ramirez died later.

Teague was treated at a hospital before being arrested.

She faces more than 23 years in prison if convicted, prosecutors said.
