STAMFORD - The woman accused in a hit-and-run crash that killed two men last month went before a judge this morning.

Police say Candice Blanks was drunk when she struck and killed Lucas Silva and Felipe Chagas before fleeing the scene.

Blanks has been charged with driving while intoxicated and evading responsibility.

An attorney for Blanks said yesterday that his client was not drunk and that Blanks pulled over on her own, after her airbags deployed in the collision.

State police have not released Blanks' blood-alcohol level and say it's quite possible she refused to be tested that night.
