TANNER, Ala. (WAFF) - The woman who is accused of driving drunk during a fatal wreck is asking the court to allow her to attend a wedding.

According to court documents released Monday, 37-year-old Amanda Leann Asuncion requested the court to allow her to leave the state to attend a family wedding. She requested to leave the state in early December for five days. The documents say the judge will address the request in court on November 30 at 1:30 p.m.

Asuncion is charged with driving under the influence after she was involved in a fatal crash Saturday night on U.S. 31, according to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. James Ben Crowley, 53, was killed after his motorcycle collided head-on with a car driven by Asuncion. Crowley was pronounced dead at the scene and Asuncion, who was not injured in the crash, was arrested at the scene for driving under the influence and transported to the Limestone County Jail.
