A woman is facing new charges in an accident last month that left two North Carolina Department of Transportation workers seriously injured.

On April 19, two DOT workers were taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after being hit by a car on I-440 East at Capital Boulevard.

Darrick Bridges, 44, was struck and pinned between the car and an N.C. DOT truck. Kelly Lewis, 46, was struck by the car and knocked over a highway guardrail.

According to warrants, Bridges had to have both legs amputated.

Angela Renee Roland, 44, of Morrisville was initially charged under a section of the state's "move-over" law that applies to incidents involving death or serious injuries.

She's now also charged with DWI and felony serious injury by vehicle.
