CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A woman was charged with driving while impaired after an accident involving two motorcycles in south Charlotte Tuesday that left one man seriously injured.
Beverly Jean Boseman, 51, was charged with DWI while at Carolinas Medical Center. Police say when she is released from the hospital, she will be charged with felony serious injury by vehicle, driving while license revoked and reckless driving.
