Huntington, W.Va. (AP) -- A Barboursville woman involved in a two-vehicle crash that killed a mother and two teenagers in April has been indicted on three counts of driving under the influence causing death.

Forty-one-year-old Erma Brown is accused of driving under the influence of prescription medications when the collision occurred at 7:30 a.m. April 2.

Forty-seven-year-old Carol Crawford, 16-year-old Meghan Crawford and 15-year-old Kelsie Kuhn died when their vehicle caught fire.

All were from Barboursville.

The indictment handed up Tuesday charges that Brown was under the influence of drugs normally prescribed for depression and seizures with reckless disregard for the safety of others and was unable to control her vehicle.

A working telephone number for brown could not be located.

    Excuse me, what is wrong with reporting this story ? They have national news on this web site as well,they report football scores from around the state. which is news, sporting news. Maybe not everyone in Parkersburg reads the Huntington news via the Huntington web services/sites.

    Attn: Mark, this story was included in the "State Headlines" so Barboursville is within the State. This website also includes Ohio News, National News...maybe you should purchase a USA map too.

    Whoops, excuse me. I thought this was a news website for the Parkersburg-Marietta area. Stupid me, I even thought Huntington had its own news sources. Seriously, when you guys carry news from Mason and Cabell County it makes me want to buy you a map.
