A Henderson County man accused of causing a crash that killed a woman Saturday makes his first court appearance.

Kentucky State Police say William Patterson crossed several lanes before crashing into 54-year-old Sharon Gaines. She died on the scene.

Patterson is charged with DUI, aggravated offense, and driving on a suspended license. He could be charged with vehicular manslaughter. So, he did not enter a plea today.

At the time of the wreck, Patterson was out on bond for a previous crime, meth possession and evading police. He's being held in the Henderson County Jail.
