TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A suspected drunken driver has been charged with vehicular homicide in a crash that killed two women in a car that had broken down on Interstate 5 in Federal Way.

The News Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/c5nJUB ) 29-year-old Rocelle Harris, of Renton, was charged Monday in connection to the Dec. 17 crash that killed 51-year-old Samantha Agee and her 31-year-old daughter, Everlean McMillan, both of Puyallup.

Washington State Patrol had received a report that a disabled car with its hazard lights on was blocking a northbound lane on I-5 just minutes before the crash. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene.

Charging documents say Harris said she didn’t see the Honda and told a trooper she had drank hours before the crash.

Her blood alcohol level tested above the legal limit.
