PICKENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Marietta woman accused of killing two people while driving drunk after crashing in Pickens County last year will appear in court Thursday.

Julie Mason is scheduled to face a Pickens County judge at 2 p.m. Thursday, according to court officials.

Officials said Mason, who was charged with two counts of felony driving under the influence resulting in death and two counts of felony driving under the influence resulting in injury, will appear for a court proceeding.

The crash happened on March 4, 2011. Troopers said Mason's truck crossed the center line on Pumpkintown Highway and hit another car head-on. Three children in Department of Social Services custody and a social worker were in the car.

The social worker, 36-year-old Chrystal Harrison of Seneca, and 10-year-old Raven Stancell of Pickens died in the crash. Investigators said the victims were wearing their seatbelts.

Mason was released on an $80,000 bond in 2011.
