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.
