A Springfield woman is jailed on reckless homicide charges stemming from an alleged DUI crash on Interstate 72 last summer that left two people dead.

Tonya L. Casper, 43, who was booked into the Sangamon County Jail about 6:45 p.m. Thursday, is being held on $1 million bond. She could be released from jail if she posts $100,000 bail.

Casper was charged Thursday with aggravated driving under the influence, reckless homicide, two counts of aggravated reckless conduct, two counts of aggravated reckless driving, DUI and speeding.

Jail records show Casper lives on Imperial Valley Drive, but court records list her address as the 1000 block of North Patton Street.

The crash happened July 17 on Interstate 72 west of Springfield. Two people died, including a passenger in a vehicle and another victim who was standing in the roadway.

Police at the time said Casper was driving east in a Toyota Corolla about 10 p.m. near the Wabash Avenue exit. She rear-ended a Ford Explorer driven by Zachary E. Barnes, 22, of Chicago.

Barnes lost control of the Explorer, which went into the median and overturned several times, police said.

A passenger in the back seat, Cameron S. Weider, 21, of Jefferson City, Mo., was thrown from the SUV and pronounced dead at the scene.
