RALEIGH, N.C. -- Police have charged a North Carolina woman with drunken driving and felony death by vehicle following a car crash that left one person dead.
Raleigh police said a car driven by 27-year-old Manuela Mantanona Gomez of Raleigh slammed into the back of another car stopped at a red light killing 24-year-old John Sullivan of Charlotte on Saturday. Sullivan was trapped in the back seat of the car that was hit.
Police say Gomez was injured and taken to WakeMed. A spokesman said Sunday that Gomez remained at the hospital and was in good condition.
Two other people in the car with Sullivan were hurt in the wreck, but their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
