Driver arrested in double fatal I-94 crash with school bus, tow truck

- An Ann Arbor woman is facing murder charges after a deadly crash involving a school bus. 

A fugitive team arrested 25-year-old Andre Edwards Tuesday. Police say she was intoxicated back in May when her SUV slammed into the back of a broken down school bus on I-94 near US-23. 

The crash killed 42-year-old tow truck driver Nader Chehadi along with Antoinette Butler, 28, a passenger in Edwards' SUV. 

Three children in the suspect's vehicle survived their injuries. Edwards is being held on a $500,000 bond. 

She is charged with two counts of second-degree murder operating while intoxicated causing death and child abuse. According to state records Edwards had her license revoked twice since 2009. The most recent time was for having three or more alcohol-related convictions in 10 years.

Chehadi was the daytime supervisor over drivers at the towing company. He was a husband and father of two children under the age of 5 years old.

Witnesses told police they saw Edwards make an abrupt lane change to the right, crossing all lanes of traffic, before driving onto the shoulder. The driver then tried to get back on the freeway, but hit the back of the school bus.
