MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Memphis woman has been indicted on charges of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence in the death of a pedestrian.

Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich’s office said in a news release that 22-year-old Curteria Leuellyn is also charged with vehicular homicide involving recklessness, leaving the scene of an accident involving death, reckless driving and driving on a suspended license.

She is charged in the death last year of 59-year-old Curtis Echols of Memphis. The prosecutor’s release said the vehicle Leuellyn was driving jumped the curb, hit a chain-link fence, struck Echols and dragged him a short distance before driving away.

Leuellyn surrendered to police the next day.

She is free on $30,000 bond.
