DUI charges filed against driver involved in fatal Florida motorcycle crash

Charges were recently filed against a driver in Florida due to suspicions that she was under the influence of alcohol when she caused a motorcycle wreck that resulted in a fatality, a report of the Miami Herald stated on September 19.

Reports said 25-year-old Mary Elizabeth Bailey surrendered to state authorities on September 16 after crashing into a motorcycle carrying two people on August 1 near Sugarloaf Key. Bailey, who admitted to being intoxicated, drove her vehicle away from the accident scene after it occurred. One occupant of the motorcycle died as a result of her injuries; the other occupant suffered serious injuries as well. Several charges related to DUI, manslaughter, and property damage were filed against Bailey, who was already in custody.
