Man faces manslaughter charge after Florence woman dies in shipwreck

FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – A man has been arrested for manslaughter more than a year after a single-vehicle crash killed a Florence woman.

On May 2, 2021, Florence police were called to wreckage on Darby Drive near Cedar Crest Drive. Officials said a 2013 Ford Edge left the road and hit a tree.

When officers arrived they said they found Charles Villagran in the driver’s seat and Pamela Hill, 58, of Florence, dead in the passenger seat.

Police told News 19 they performed a toxicology exam on Villagran which revealed a large amount of methamphetamine in his system.

A Lauderdale County grand jury charged him with manslaughter and he was arrested on July 29, 2022.

Villagran was taken to the Lauderdale County Detention Center on $50,000 bond.
