A heartwarming story from the Midlands of South Carolina. Sent to me by my sister.
SUMTER, SC (Aug. 3, 2020) – One woman is dead and another in jail following an argument that led to a vehicle crash.
Shemika Oliver, 25, of Sumter died Sunday morning at Prisma Health Tuomey Hospital after she was injured in a vehicle crash following an argument and fight with another woman. The incident began after 8 a.m. in the Hoyt Heights mobile home park.
Witnesses said Oliver was hanging on to the side of a vehicle when the woman she was fighting with accelerated. Oliver was left lying injured near a mobile home as the vehicle drove off.
The vehicle, driven by Tomekia Moore, 39, also of Sumter, was located a short time later and stopped by Sumter County Sheriff’s Office deputies who reported Moore appeared to be incoherent and smelled of alcohol.
Moore is charged by the Sumter Police Department with felony driving under the influence resulting in death, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death and failure to render aid.
Oliver’s next of kin were notified by the Sumter County Coroner’s Office, and an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
Moore is being held in the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Detention Center.
An investigation is continuing. The S.C. Highway Patrol’s Multi-disciplinary Accident Investigation Team was asked to assist. Results from a blood alcohol level analysis are pending.
I don’t know why they bothered to post a picture. The names say it all.
