Driver accused of DUI and causing the Death of a Woman on her Wedding Night has been Granted Bail

A 26-year-old woman accused of homicide in a South Carolina crash that resulted in the death of a bride on her wedding night has been granted bond.

Jamie Lee Komoroski was released on Friday after paying a $150,000 bond, as shown by Charleston County Sheriff’s Office inmate records. She had been incarcerated since April 2023 for one charge of reckless homicide and three felony charges of driving under the influence resulting in serious bodily harm.

According to court documents, Komoroski will be under house arrest and can only leave her home for medical situations or court orders. The individual must additionally wear an alcohol monitoring device.

Authorities reported that on the night of April 28, 2023, Komoroski was driving a rented automobile that collided with a golf cart carrying newlyweds Samantha Miller and Aric Hutchinson in Folly Beach, a city situated on Folly Island southeast of Charleston. Miller was still wearing her wedding dress barely hours after being married.

Miller perished in the collision, while Hutchinson sustained brain damage and several fractures. Two additional family members who were in the golf cart also sustained injuries.

Komoroski’s blood alcohol level was almost three times higher than the legal limit set by the state, as indicated by a toxicology report from the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division. Investigators reported that she was driving the car at around 65 miles per hour when she collided with the golf cart.

In October, Hutchinson settled a wrongful death case against two bars for allegedly overserving Komoroski before the accident.
