A not guilty plea was entered Tuesday on behalf of a woman charged in connection with a wrong-way crash on Interstate 77 that claimed the life of a Big Chimney man.
Angela Walker appeared in Kanawha Circuit Court for her arraignment on a driving under the influence causing death charge. Her lawyer, John Mitchell Jr., requested that she remain silent on her plea and that the court enter a not guilty plea on her behalf.
Deputies said Walker, 46, of Charleston is accused of driving north in the southbound lanes of I-77 just north of the Charleston city limits when her vehicle struck a vehicle driven by Edward Peter Bryant of Big Chimney. Bryant was killed in the wreck; Walker was seriously injured.
Investigators said alcohol was involved in the crash.
Kanawha Circuit Judge Duke Bloom set a $2,500 personal recognizance bond.
