TULSA, OK -- A Sand Springs woman has been charged in connection with a deadly crash last week on state Highway 51 in Sand Springs.

Tausha Borland, 38, was charged on Tuesday in Tulsa County District Court with two counts of first-degree manslaughter, one count of DUI and one count of leaving the scene of a fatality accident.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Borland swerved her SUV onto the shoulder and hit three bicyclists from behind on June 9th.

The impact killed two of the bicyclists, 33-year-old Krista Voss of Owasso and 34-year-old Matthew Edmonds of Tulsa.

A third bicyclist was treated and released from a Tulsa hospital. 

Troopers say a witness finally forced Borland to stop her vehicle, several hundred yards from the crash scene. 

Borland is free on a $100,000 bond.

Tulsa County District Court records show Borland pleaded guilty to driving while impaired in 2007.

She received a 6-month suspended sentence.
