HARDWICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Vehicular homicide charges have been filed against a Pennsylvania woman who allegedly was driving drunk and traveling the wrong way when she caused a deadly head-on crash on a northwestern New Jersey highway.

Authorities tell The Express-Times of Easton, Pa. ( that 23-year-old Amanda Rivera of Paradise Township turned herself in Wednesday to New Jersey state police. She also faces three counts of assault by auto and was being held on $100,000 bail.

It was not known if she has retained an attorney.

Rivera was driving in a westbound lane of Interstate 80 in Hardwick Township when her vehicle collided head-on with a car carrying four people on Dec. 27.

A rear-seat passenger in the car, 25-year-old Jason Frey of Chestnuthill Township, Pa., was killed. The three people in the car and Rivera suffered injuries.
