CHADRON, Neb. (AP) – A Pine Ridge, S.D., woman accused of being drunk and causing a fatal northwest Nebraska crash has been charged with vehicular homicide.

The accident occurred Sept. 9 north of Chadron.

The Nebraska State Patrol says Eagle Bull's minivan went out of control and rolled, injuring three adults and three children.

Two children were flown to a Denver hospital for treatment, and the patrol says one of them, 6-year-old Christina Roubideaux, died there the next day.

Court records also say 32-year-old Kimberly Eagle Bull is charged with drunken driving, felony intentional child abuse and other crimes.
