DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – A man faces a drunken driving charge after he drove his van onto a Deerfield Beach sidewalk, killing a woman who was waiting for a bus, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

Jamie Lynn Honaker, 41, was sitting at a county bus stop along Sample Road on Sunday night when she was struck by a GMC Safari.

After jumping the curb, the van continued driving west on Sample Road before coming to a stop about two blocks away. The van had extensive front-end damage and a flat tire as a result of the crash.

Honaker was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the van was identified as Mark J. Jusevic, 56, of Coconut Creek.

BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said Jusevic exhibited signs of impairment and was arrested. He faces a charge of DUI manslaughter.

Carter said Jusevic had a prior DUI arrest in 2005.
