Police have charged a Delaware County woman with vehicular homicide and drunk driving after she drove her car into a stopped tractor-trailer last summer, killing her passenger.
Nichole Labelle, 23, of Secane, also was charged with involuntary manslaughter and related offenses, according to court records. She was jailed on $350,000 bail and faces an Aug. 14 preliminary hearing.
Labelle was driving west on Enterprise Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia at 4:15 p.m. on July 15, 2012, when her car drifted onto the shoulder and hit a stopped tractor trailer, said Officer Christine O’Brien, a police spokeswoman.
Passenger George Kaminski, 21, of West Grove, suffered severe head and body trauma and died two days later at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, O'Brien said.
