Sterling Grace Panchikal, 19, also was indicted on three counts of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
The crash occurred on her 17th birthday, May 2, 2015, on Bill Morris Parkway just west of Hacks Cross Road.
Killed in the crash was Alejandra Sanchez-Ponce, 47, a Memphis woman who was driving another vehicle. Her 27-year-old daughter was critically injured. A woman and two children in a third vehicle sustained non-critical injuries.
Investigators said Panchikal was eastbound on Bill Morris Parkway when her vehicle crossed over the grass median, struck a cable barrier and entered the westbound lanes. Her car struck two other vehicles head-on. A fourth vehicle was hit by debris from the crash.
Investigators found vodka, marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the defendant’s vehicle.
