According to the Somerset County Prosecutor's Office, Locane plowed into the passenger side of another car in Montgomery, New Jersey ... killing the woman sitting in the front seat.

The driver of the car was flown to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. Locane was arrested at the scene for DUI and taken to a different hospital for treatment.

According to the Prosecutor, Locane was also involved in a minor hit-and-run accident right before the deadly crash.

Locane admitted to police she drank several glasses of wine before getting behind the wheel, The Star-Ledger reports.

Locane, who also starred alongside Johnny Depp in "Cry-Baby," was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree assault by auto and faces 5-10 years in prison if convicted. Bail is yet to be set.

How terribly and horribly sad for everyone. I cannot imagine the pain and guilt she will feel her whole life. Everyone makes mistakes-I just hope people learn from ones like this....before it happens again.



My prayers are with all involved.

So a life is worth 50k. Yay for public drunkeness, I think I'd rather smell someone smoking in public than be killed by someone in a car that has a cheap public drunk going :O

She is definitely doing jail time. What TMZ didn't report is that shortly before she killed this woman she was involved in another accident where she rearended a vehicle. She then left the scene(which will get you jail time regardless). The person she rear ended followed her while calling the police, telling the police she is running over mailboxes. This isn't California, she is definitely doing jail time and she will have to serve 85% of it.

"Wait a minute... she's a celebrity"



I don't think she qualifies as a celebrity anymore. She was barely one at the height of her "success", now she's just some chick that managed to score a couple of decent parts 15 years ago.

Left hand turn drivers are deadly for many people, especially motorcycles. It sounds as if they left hand turned in front of her and she did not have time to stop. Regardless, she will be found guilty with a DUI.
