LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman is now charged with murder after police say she caused a deadly crash while driving under the influence of alcohol.

Police say the driver of the car that allegedly caused the crash - 40-year-old Candice Harris - smelled strongly of alcohol and failed several field sobriety tests.

According to the arrest report, the crash happened around 10:15 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of Dixie Highway and Dixie Garden Drive and involved a car and a motorcycle.

Although Harris stated several times that she had not been drinking, police say a portable breathalyzer test was administered and Harris blew a .178. Police say she refused to take a second breathalyzer at the jail, so police obtained a search warrant to conduct a blood test. 

Police say the driver of the motorcycle, 21-year-old Steven Hesler, was sent to the hospital, where he died Monday afternoon. Officials say the cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries.

Harris is also charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs. A not guilty plea was entered on her behalf.
