BEAUMONT - Family members of a 75-year-old woman killed when her car was hit by an accused intoxicated driver may be closer to seeing justice in their loved one's death.
A Jefferson County Grand Jury handed up a one-count indictment this week charging Wayne Everett Cummings with second degree felony intoxication manslaughter.
According the indictment, Linda Ramsey, 75, was driving her 1999 Cadillac along Parry Street in January. When she got to the intersection with Fillmore Street, Cummings' Camaro slammed into her car. Ramsey died from her injuries.
Police say Cummings admitted to taking an, "unknown type" drug, but said it had been several days before the collision. Investigators say the drug contributed to his thought process and the decision to drive at a high rate of speed.
