HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - A woman charged with involuntary manslaughter in a 2018 crash was located in Madrid, Spain.

On Aug. 16, 2018, Henrico police responded to the 2900 block of Parham Road near Tucker High School for a crash.

Beverly Page Bourgeois, 59, was struck while working in her yard. She was taken to VCU Medical Center for the treatment of her injuries. She later passed away on Aug. 30, 2018 due to complications from injuries sustained in the crash.

The driver of the Nissan, Osmaira Mendez Urdaneta, was charged with involuntary manslaughter on Nov. 1, 2018.

Urdaneta failed to appear on the first hearing of Oct. 25, 2018 at 11 a.m. in Henrico’s General District Court.
