GREENVILLE, N.C. — State troopers have charged an Edgecombe County woman in connection with a wreck that killed a 6-year-old flower girl on the way to a wedding in Greenville.

WNCT in Greenville reports that Mupin Wu Cummings, 39, of Pinetops, faces a charge of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

State troopers said that Cummings' Jeep Cherokee crossed the center line of N.C. Highway 43 on April 9, striking a Honda Accord head-on. Ava Kendall was killed, and two bridesmaids – Michele Garland, 22, and Lindsey Whitehurst, 13 – were injured, along with Cummings.

Cummings first court date was set for Sept. 8. Troopers said the date was delayed due to the extent of her injuries.
