Temple Police arrested a woman accused of causing a deadly crash in 2017.

Officers responded to a major crash involving three vehicles in the 2600 block of South 5th Street on September 18, 2017.

When officers arrived, they found a Black Ford F150, a Black Nissan Maxima and a White Ford Escape. 

Investigation into the crash revealed the driver of the Ford F-150, identified as Audra McQueen, was traveling southbound when she crossed over into the northbound lanes and crashed head-on into the White Ford Escape and hit the Black Nissan Maxima stopped waiting to make a left turn onto Fryers Creek Drive.

The driver and passenger of the Ford Escape (William Schumann was identifed as the driver and Martha Schumann was identified as the front-seat passenger) succumbed to their injuries and were pronounced dead by Justice of the Peace David Barfield.  

Temple Police Department Accident Reconstructionists investigated and reviewed this case with the Bell County District Attorney’s Office. After a thorough review, the Grand Jury indicted Audra McQueen for two counts of Criminally Negligent Homicide and warrants for her arrest were issued.

McQueen was arrested for those warrants by Temple Police Officers on August 31, 2018 and was transported to the Bell County Jail.
