The State charged the driver of the vehicle that killed Tom Hoskins and Lee Ann Barry with 2 counts of Reckless Homicide.
We’ll see what happens, but this is a good start!
From the WLTX article:
State troopers have filed charges against a woman who they say is responsible for a crash that killed two people, including a Columbia man.
Sharon King faces two charges of reckless homicide.
Troopers say King was the driver in an accident which killed Thomas Hoskins of Columbia and Lee Ann Barry of Charlotte.
Reckless Homicide in South Carolina is defined as:
When the death of a person ensues within three years as a proximate result of injury received by the driving of a vehicle in reckless disregard of the safety of others, the person operating the vehicle is guilty of reckless homicide. A person who is convicted of, pleads guilty to, or pleads nolo contendere to reckless homicide is guilty of a felony and must be fined not less than one thousand dollars nor more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both. The Department of Motor Vehicles must revoke for five years the driver’s license of a person convicted of reckless homicide.
