LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A woman who admitted to drinking beer at work hours before colliding with a vehicle that resulted in a driver's death was slated to appear in a Las Vegas court room Wednesday.
Shauna Miller, 26, was charged with driving under the influence causing death in the March 23 wreck at the intersection of Spring Mountain and Wynn roads just after 7 a.m. that day. The wreck resulted in the death of 33-year-old James White, police said.
A two-year-old boy inside White's vehicle was not seriously hurt.
According to Miller's arrest report, the woman told police her Hummer H2 was westbound on Spring Mountain when she entered the intersection on a green-to-yellow light change.
She told police, in the report, White's car was turning right from Wynn to Spring Mountain when her vehicle collided with his.

She told police, in the report, she had two beers while she was at work earlier that morning at the Spearmint Rhino strip club. The report also stated Miller saying she took a Xanax pill about 8 p.m. the evening before.
In the police report, Miller failed two stages of a field sobriety test and was subsequently booked for DUI.
