LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman who police say drove the wrong way on a Southern California freeway, sparking a deadly head-on crash, has been charged with six counts of murder.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Olivia Culbreath, of Fontana, was charged Thursday. Her bail was set at $6 million but she remains hospitalized from injuries she suffered in Sunday's crash east of Los Angeles.

Culbreath could face life in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say Culbreath was driving a Camaro that hit a Ford Explorer on state Route 60 in Diamond Bar, hurling wreckage and bodies onto the roadway. Four people in the SUV — all members of the same family — were killed.

Culbreath's sister and another woman in the Camaro also died.
