(AP) Authorities in northern Virginia say Jacqueline Badger Mars, an owner of the candy company Mars Inc., will face a reckless driving misdemeanor charge in a fatal crash.


The Loudoun County Commonwealth Attorney's Office says Mars was served Tuesday with a summons. The sheriff's office says Mars was driving a Porsche SUV in Aldie, Va., on Oct. 4 when it crossed the center line and hit a minivan. The sheriff's office says 86-year-old minivan passenger Irene Ellisor of Huntsville, Texas, died at the scene.


Seventy-four-year-old Mars, the company founder's daughter who has been ranked by Forbes Magazine as the world's seventh richest woman, is set to appear in court Dec. 5.


A personal spokesman says Mars "regrets this tragic accident" and her thoughts and prayers are with those who suffered injury and loss.
