A Charleston County grand jury has issued four indictments against Jamie Komoroski, the woman accused of causing a fatal DUI crash. The grand jury returned the indictments on Wednesday, charging Komoroski with one count of felony DUI resulting in death, two counts of felony DUI resulting in great bodily injury, and one count of reckless homicide.
The incident occurred on April 28 when Komoroski, allegedly heavily intoxicated, collided with a golf cart on Folly Beach. The golf cart was carrying newlywed Samantha Miller and three other passengers, including Miller’s husband. Police reports indicate that Komoroski was driving at 65 mph in a 25 mph zone when she rear-ended the golf cart on East Ashley Avenue around 10 p.m.
A toxicology report revealed that Komoroski’s blood alcohol content level was three times higher than the legal limit at the time of the crash. Following the incident, Komoroski has been in custody at the Al Cannon Detention Center.
During an August 2 hearing, Komoroski requested bail, but a South Carolina judge denied her request.
