On Aug. 8, 2021, police say 56-year-old Kimberly Dragich “accelerated rapidly” while she was driving her Honda CR-V, hitting her husband, Brian Bowles, on a street in Bealeton, Virginia.

Bowles was taken to a Fairfax hospital, where he died the following day, according to authorities.

According to a witness, she received a text message from Dragich before the incident and Dragich mentioned potentially killing her husband, the Fauquier Times reported. Another witness stated they ran after the vehicle and identified the driver as Dragich.

Dragich spoke with detectives and told them Bowles “stepped into the roadway” before she hit him with the vehicle, the Fauquier Times stated. She added she stepped on the gas, wanting him to move.

Court records state witnesses saw the vehicle accelerate quickly before hitting Bowles, driving over him and then driving away, the Fauquier Times reported. When police arrived on the scene, Bowles was found lying in the road.

During her interview with detectives, Dragich told them she was drinking the night of the incident and agreed to take a blood alcohol content preliminary breath test, which was measured at 0.1. It was calculated later and was at 0.08 at that time, police said.

While Dragich was initially charged with driving while intoxicated and malicious wounding, those charges were later dropped. She now has been charged with one count of second-degree murder, police said.

She remains in custody without bond.
