MADERA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a pregnant woman is facing multiple drunken driving charges for a crash in Central California that left a man dead and three others injured.

The California Highway Patrol says 23-year-old Candice Ooley was arrested on suspicion of felony DUI and vehicular manslaughter after a crash Friday night on Highway 41 in Madera County.

The CHP tells KFSN-TV in Fresno (http://abc30.tv/1YOYfm4) Ooley, who is six months pregnant, was driving a sedan at a high speed when she rear-ended an SUV. The impact caused the SUV to lose control, sending it down an embankment.

Officials say Federico Nunez Silva, a passenger in the SUV, died at the scene. The driver was airlifted to the hospital and his two female passengers were taken by ambulance - after being pinned inside the vehicle for about an hour. Their injuries range from moderate to major.

Authorities say Ooley was driving on a suspended license because of a previous DUI conviction.
