A Port St. Lucie woman who allegedly killed four people while driving the wrong way on Interstate 95 in Martin County nearly a year ago was arrested today on vehicular homicide charges.
Carolyn Ramos was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals and booked into the Martin County Jail, Martin County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Christine Christofek Weiss said.
Ramos is being held on $280,000 bond. She is facing four counts of vehicular homicide and four counts of DUI manslaughter after authorities alleged she killed two adults and two children during a fiery head-on collision the morning of May 13 near Palm City.
According to published reports, Ramos drove her Jeep SUV south on northbound I-95 and crashed into a Chevrolet pickup.
Demetrius Suggs, 28, and Porchsa Suggs, both of Chattanooga, Tenn., died, along with Raineisha Powell, 9, of Miami, and Mercedes Davis, 7, of Chattanooga.
