A Jacksonville woman is facing charges in connection with a Feb. 7, crash in West Palm Beach in which eighteen people were injured.

Kimberly Brown, 42, was driving a Toyota Tundra which collided with a Ford passenger van registered to Inlet Cab Company, according to a probable cause affidavit.


The collision happened shortly before 1 a.m. on Okeechobee Boulevard near Congress Avenue.
