SPARTA, Wis. – A Waunakee woman is facing homicide charges after a fatal wrong-way crash earlier this month.

Herbst was reportedly weaving across lanes and an open intoxicant was found in her vehicle.

One person was killed in the crash, and two other people suffered serious injuries.

Herbst is charged with first-degree reckless homicide and homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle.
