Olivia Culbreath's arraignment postponed due to her injuries

The first scheduled arraignment of DUI suspect Olivia Culbreath was postponed because she was still hospitalized.

The San Bernardino Sun reports that 21-year-old Culbreath remains hospitalized at USC Medical Center, which is why she did not make her Pomona hearing.

Culbreath faces multiple murder charges for allegedly causing a wrong-way car accident on February 9, on the 60 Freeway in Diamond Bar. That accident killed six people, including her sister, Maya Culbreath.

Authorities say that Culbreath was intoxicated and driving more than 100 mph when she hit a 1998 Ford Explorer which then hit a Ford Freestyle.

The 57-year-old driver of the Freestyle was Joel Cortez, the only surviving victim of the crash. He recently gave an interview to KTLA in which he recalled seeing the Ford Explorer in front of him "jump into the air."

"I heard people talking ... 'Oh my God, there are bodies all over the place,'" Cortez told reporters.

Cortez only suffered minor injuries in the crash.
