Driver charged with vehicular homicide for driving into New Jersey farmers market, killing 1

Vehicular homicide charges have been filed against a pickup truck driver who is accused of driving into a New Jersey farmers market, killing a woman and injuring two other people.

James Woetzel, of Hawthorne, also was charged with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident that resulted in death. His bail was set at $200,000 and it was not known if he has retained an attorney.

The accident happened around 2:20 p.m. Sunday in Hawthorne. Authorities say the 48-year-old Woetzel drove his pickup truck through a barricade and hit three people, including 58-year-old Hawthorne resident Donna Wine, who was dragged for three blocks.

Wine was pronounced dead at the scene. Two others were treated at a hospital for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
