NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - A 59-year-old woman has been arrested and charged in connection with a collision that killed her daughter and severely injured her 3-year-old granddaughter in November.

The North Platte Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/1zHAUpl ) Vicky Allen turned herself in to authorities Monday. She is accused of motor vehicle homicide, driving under the influence of drugs and causing serious bodily injury and possession of a controlled substance.

Toxicology reports show Allen’s blood tested positive for a combination of drugs that officials say produce impairment similar to intoxication.

The crash occurred when Allen was driving to North Platte when the van crossed the center line and rammed into a semitrailer. Her daughter Michelle Heisz was pronounced dead at the scene. Her granddaughter Anjellycka Heisz sustained severe injuries and spent over a month in the hospital.
