Drunk drives two miles dying man stuck in windshield - Los Angeles
Woman has offered no explaination for her actions.
A drunk driver hit and killed a pedestrian in Torrance on Saturday then drove with the dying victim in her windshield for at least two miles.
Sherry Wilkins, 51, will face a judge on Tuesday for her horrific act.
Shockingly, after striking Moreno, the woman continued driving for another two miles as Moreno suffered in her windshield.
Moreno died at a local hospital shortly thereafter.
Wilkins has been charged with manslaughter and drunk driving. Police say her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit. She claims she was driving home from work when the incident occurred.
Police may also add felony hit and run charges to the case.
Wilkins is set to appear before a judge on Tuesday.
