Police Investigate Fatal Car Accident in Martinsville
Police are unaware of what caused the driver to lose control of the car, but alcohol is considered to be a factor. According to WSET, there have been warrants issued for the driver with DUI charges along with driving on a suspended license and reckless driving.

Just because the at-fault driver is facing criminal charges does not preclude them from seeking justice through a civil action.
