A Cullman woman is facing charges stemming from a January 21 wreck that left another woman dead.
Quintana Rainwater, 32, has been charged with murder (reckless), manslaughter, criminal negligent homicide, driving under the influence, and running a red light, according to a statement from Cullman Police Sgt. Joey Duncan with the traffic homicide investigation team. She was arrested Wednesday.
Charlotte Nelson, 79, of Cullman was pronounced dead in January at Cullman Regional from injuries sustained in the two-car accident near Sportsman Lake on U.S. 31.
“After the crash investigation was complete it was discovered human error and driver impairment were involved, which resulted in the death of Charlotte Nelson. This case was turned over to the Cullman County District Attorney’s Office and grand jury Indictments were issued,” said Duncan in the statement.
The fatality was the first of 2019 in the City of Cullman.
Rainwater is currently being held in the Cullman County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond.
