A man died in a car crash where alcohol and speed played a part, police said. Now, the female driver has been arrested and charged with murder.
Around 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 27, the vehicle of 31-year-old Margaret Marie Davis hit a Jeep driven by 73-year-old Jerry Lawrence Wilson after Davis failed to yield at a stop sign in Aberdeen, North Carolina, according to authorities.
Officials said Wilson’s vehicle flipped from the collision and he was airlifted to UNC Medical Center. He died from his injuries from the accident on Oct. 13.
Investigators said they determined alcohol and speed were factors in the wreck, The Pilot reported.
After the crash in September, Davis was charged with driving while intoxicated and driving the wrong way on a dual lane road, failure to stop at a stop sign, exceeding posted speed and failure to yield leading to serious injury, authorities said.
She was booked into jail under a $50,000 bond, which she posted, police said. Davis is set to appear in court again on Dec. 1, officials added.
