A Mission woman is behind bars tonight facing criminal charges for the death of a Palmview teen.

36 year old Carmen Gonzalez Velez was arrested today and charged with one count of criminal negligent homicide after she was identified as the driver of the Chevrolet Cobalt involved in the auto-pedestrian accident that killed 16 year old Brenda Cuellar, a sophomore at Palmview high school and member of the soccer team.

The incident happened on February 24th on La Homa Road and Mile 3 and a half after Cuellar came off the school bus and attempted to cross the street.

The crash occurred when Gonzalez failed to stop for the bus. She has been booked into Hidalgo county jail on a 100 thousand dollar bond.
