Seabrook woman waives hearing in deadly bike crash
A Seabrook woman charged with driving into a group of bicyclists, killing two Massachusetts women, has waived a probable cause hearing.
Nineteen-year-old Darriean Hess was charged with two counts of negligent homicide in the Sept. 21 crash. The police said she was driving without a license and speeding when she ran into the bicyclists.
Hess was scheduled for a preliminary hearing today. She is free on $50,000 bail.
The next stop is at Superior Court for possible indictment by a grand jury.
The police said Hess had been stopped on the same road eight hours before and ticketed for driving without a license and speeding.
Killed in the crash were 60-year-old Pamela Wells, of South Hamilton, Mass., and 52-year-old Elise Bouchard, of Danvers, Mass. Two others were injured.
