Sep 24, 2013

Police say Darriean Hess was behind the wheel on Ocean Boulevard in Hampton Saturday morning, when her car crossed the median and struck four cyclists, all  from Massachusetts. Two of the cyclists did not survive:  Pamela Wells, and Elise Bouchard.

Hampton Police Chief Jamie Sullivan says Hess could face up to 7 years in prison for two counts of two separate Class B felonies: two counts of Negligent Homicide, and two counts of Second Degree Assault. 

Sullivan says Hess was driving without a license, and had been pulled over for speeding eight hours before the accident.  The Hampton police department’s investigation remains ongoing.
