James Woetzel, of Hawthorne, was brought into court in a wheelchair on Wednesday.

Woetzel is charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident that resulted in death. He remains held on $200,000 bail.

He was ordered to surrender his driver’s license and undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Authorities say the 48-year-old drove his pickup truck through a barricade on Sunday, hitting three people, knocking over stands and sending produce into the air.

Fifty-eight-year-old Donna Wine, of Hawthorne, was dragged for three blocks and killed. Two others were treated at a hospital.
