Formal Charges Filed in Alcohol Related Fatal Accident Near Vincennes

The Knox County Prosecutor has filed formal charges against a woman involved in a November 8th fatal accident on US 50 near Vincennes.

39-year-old Martia Miley is charged with Causing Death While Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated; Reckless Homicide; Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated Causing Serious Bodily Injury; and Criminal Recklessness.

Authorities say Miley’s blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit when the car she was driving rear-ended a van, crossed the median and struck a car head-on, killing 59-year-old Terry Bailey of Carlisle.

Although Miley showed a Florida address, police say she had been living in Vincennes.

Miley has yet to appear for her initial hearing in Knox County Superior Court-One.
