Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CBS 8/CNS) - On Wednesday, a judge determined at a preliminary hearing that Brandy Teague, a woman who was allegedly high on drugs when she crashed her compact into a power pole in El Cajon, killing her 3-year-old daughter and seriously injuring her two other children, will stand trial.

Brandy Teague, 32, is charged with gross vehicular manslaughter while impaired, DUI with injury, child endangerment, driving on a suspended license and possession of methamphetamine.

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. last April 4.

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

Teague was treated at a hospital before being arrested. She faces 14 years in prison if convicted.
