(Reuters) - Billionaire candy heiress Jacqueline Badger Mars faces trial on a charge of reckless driving in an accident that killed an elderly woman, authorities said on Wednesday.
Mars, 74, was driving a Porsche SUV on October 4 when it crossed into an oncoming lane of traffic and struck a minivan in Aldie, Virginia, according to the Loudoun County sheriff.
A passenger in the backseat of the minivan, Irene Ellisor, 86, died at the scene. She was not wearing a seatbelt, police said.
