CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Police say a North Carolina woman driving under the influence of alcohol crashed into a road crew over the weekend, killing one man and injuring three others.

Local media report the crew was doing construction outside a mall in Concord when the crash happened early Saturday morning.

According to the press release, Middleton’s blood alcohol levels were above the legal limit.

Police said in a press release that Danyel McKenzie Middleton of Concord, who turns 22 Sunday, has been charged with felony death by vehicle and could face additional charges. She was jailed on $1 million bail pending a court appearance Monday. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had an attorney.

Police say 50-year-old Socorro Maya Martinez of Graham was killed. Three others were taken to hospitals.
