Accused drunk/impaired driver Kathryn McGlasson, 39, is now charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication for Friday’s head-on collision on Lebanon Pike that claimed the life of a Nashville man.

At the time of Patton’s death Friday night, McGlasson was free on $13,750 bond. Charges against her were amended. She was taken into custody today.
