LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – On Friday bail was set at $5,000 cash for woman accused of causing a crash that killed three people in Lexington.

Rodriguez’ truck struck a Chevy Sonic head-on, then spun around and hit a Jeep, according to police.
Rodriguez’ sister, Debbie Bevins, was a passenger in the truck. She died in the crash.
Two people in the Sonic, 26-year-old Taylor Denise Blevins and 20-year-old Caitlyn Danielle Bailey, both of Georgetown, were also killed in the crash. The two were sisters.
Rodriguez was hospitalized after the accident, but was released and booked into jail Thursday.
Rodriguez is charged with driving under the influence and not having a driver’s license. She could face additional charges.
According to Kentucky State Police since 2003 Rodriguez has been charged with 5 DUI’s.
They say of those 5, she was convicted for 3.
