KANE, Pa. (AP) - A northwestern Pennsylvania woman has been bound over for trial on charges that she was under the influence of prescription medicine when she caused a head-on crash that killed six people.

The Bradford Era reported (https://bit.ly/1nUSaDE ) that Kane District Judge David Engman ruled Wednesday at a preliminary hearing for 37-year-old Kathleen Douglas of Kane. She’s charged with six counts of homicide by vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance.

Police allege Douglas had high levels of the prescription drug clonazepam in her blood when the Aug. 31 crash occurred on U.S Route 219 in the Allegheny National Forest.

Authorities say Douglas’ sport utility vehicle crossed the center line and hit an approaching car, killing her 12-year-old daughter, her 6-year-old nephew and the four adults in the other car.
