EL RENO, Okla. (AP) — A woman has been charged with four counts of second-degree murder for a wrong-way crash that killed a family of four in October in central Oklahoma.

According to court records, charges were filed on Thursday against 33-year-old Ashley Louise Ricks, of Moore. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol alleges that Ricks was going the wrong way on Interstate 40 near El Reno at about 1:30 a.m. on October 17th when she slammed head on into a vehicle with three adults and a girl. The car that Ricks is accused of hitting went into the center median and burst into flames as the four people within were trapped inside. Ricks was hospitalized after the collision.
