A Vestavia Hills woman has been charged with a felony crime in connection with a March DUI crash that critically injured a 24-year-old man.
Karen Pridgen Stafford, 50, was arrested Thursday, according to court and jail records. She was booked into the Jefferson County Jail at 1:30 p.m. and released 27 minutes later after posting $15,000 bond.
Stafford is charged with first-degree assault in the March 4 head-on crash on U.S. 31 in Homewood that injured Hoover resident Steven Edmondson. Edmondson was traveling northbound on the highway when his vehicle was struck by Stafford, who was driving on the wrong side of the road. The crash happened on the hill near Brookwood Medical Center that Saturday evening.
