Woman pleads not guilty after crash hurts cyclists

By From page A4 | August 16, 2014

SAN DIEGO — A driver charged with plowing into a group of cyclists, leaving one paralyzed, while she was under the influence of drugs pleaded not guilty Friday.

Theresa Lynn Owens, 49, was ordered to remain jailed on $300,000 bail and mouthed the words “I’m so sorry” before she was led away, U-T San Diego reported.

Owens could face up to 12 years and eight months in prison if convicted of drug possession and driving under the influence of drugs.

Prosecutors say Owens was driving the wrong way Tuesday evening on a road on Fiesta Island in Mission Bay when she collided head-on with 10 bicyclists on a curve.
