The driver responsible for a fatal crash on a couple’s wedding night in South Carolina, in which the bride was killed, has been criticised by the victim’s mother for her “conscious choice” to drink and drive.
Samantha Miller, 34, was killed instantly when Jamie Komoroski rear-ended the golf cart she was travelling in with her new husband, Aric Hutchinson, at speeds of up to 65 mph in a 25 mph zone. Komoroski’s blood-alcohol level was later found to be .261%, more than three times the legal limit.
Hutchinson was seriously injured, along with his brother-in-law, while his nephew was unharmed. Komoroski has been charged with felony DUI resulting in death, and her lawyers have urged people not to “rush to judgement”.
