MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. – The woman accused of driving drunk when she slammed her pickup truck into a car carrying two Montgomery County high school cheerleaders has been arrested and charged with multiple offenses.

Roni Proctor, 26, was hospitalized after the crash on May 16 that injured 17-year-old Kylie Eastin and 15-year-old Ashley Travis.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said Proctor was drunk when her pickup truck drifted into the southbound lanes of Highway 13, and into the path of a Chevrolet Malibu, driven by Eastin. Eastin attempted to avoid the crash, but the car was struck head-on.

Eastin and Travis were taken by LifeFlight to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Eastin has since been released, and attended her high school graduation on Thursday night at Montgomery Central High School. Travis remained hospitalized Friday in critical condition.

Proctor was booked into the Montgomery County jail Thursday after being charged with DUI, two counts of vehicular assault, and improper lane use. Her bond was set at $105,000.
