According to a witness, a suspected drunken driver who was involved in an accident that resulted in the death of a bride-to-be on her wedding day claimed she had “done nothing wrong” after the incident.
Jamie Lee Komoroski was arrested for allegedly hitting a couple in a golf cart at a speed of more than double the limit.
She was charged with three counts of driving under the influence of alcohol causing serious bodily injury and one count of reckless murder.
Authorities said that Samantha Miller, 34 years old, died from blunt force injuries only hours after she exchanged vows with Aric Hutchinson.
According to NBC, a witness stated that Komoroski said repeatedly “I did not do anything wrong” and wanted to return home.
The report stated that an officer reported smelling “an odour coming from Komoroski”, who claimed to be driving home when “all at once something hit me”.
The suspect drove in the opposite direction of her home, according to police.
A toxicology report revealed that despite telling officers she had only consumed two alcoholic beverages that night, the blood alcohol level was three times higher than South Carolina’s legal limit of 0.08%.
The incident report stated that she refused to take a sobriety check at the scene, and was swaying if asked to stand.
According to the police, the golf cart was “on its side, mangled” with a Toyota sedan.
Andrew Gilreath is the public safety director in the Folly Beach, where the accident occurred. He said that data from the rental Toyota showed Komoroski driving at 65mph when the zone was 25mph and she only briefly braked before hitting the golf cart.
Three others were also taken to hospital including M Hutchinson. He suffered brain injuries, both broken legs and a back injury.
According to online records, Komoroski is still in custody and will be in court on the 16th of June.
