A state worker in Illinois allegedly drove drunk, causing a crash that decapitated a woman, according to reports.
Adrianna Roman, 37, was charged with aggravated DUI causing death and reckless homicide in connection to an April 18 crash near Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Roman was driving 79 mph when she got off I-55 and slammed into the grass median, prosecutors said, and the Sun-Times reported.
Her car went airborne and landed on its passenger side. It collided with a vehicle driven by Krystle Levy, according to the Sun-Times.
The impact sheared the roof of Levy’s car and decapitated the victim.
Prosecutors said Roman was found belted inside her car when police arrived, according to the Sun-Times. She was taken to the hospital, and blood tests showed a .183 blood alcohol content. That is more than twice the .08 legal driving limit.
A defense attorney said Roman works for the Department of Human Services and inspects homes for use as daycare centers, according to the Sun-Times. She is also the mother of three children.
Bail for Roman was set at $80,000.
