Charges may soon be upgraded against a woman believed to have been in a crash that sent another driver 20 feet over the Hardy Toll Road to her death. Pamela Pugh is currently charged with driving while intoxicated. She was arrested for DWI early Friday morning after calling in a wreck, saying another driver had forced her into the retaining wall.

Pugh was arrested because an officer smelled alcohol. It wasn't until almost two hours later that a truck was discovered below the toll road with a woman's body inside.

Authorities say it appears Pugh's vehicle hit the woman from behind.
