Police say Tina Phillips was driving over 70 mph when her car plowed through a fence before crashing into Varner. A witness who witnessed the crash ran to a store to call 911 as there was no reception at the scene then turned around to assist.
According to court papers, Phillips suffered from epilepsy. Citing emergency room records after the accident, police said she told doctors she had sudden seizures about once a year. However, while undergoing medical check-ups to keep his driver’s license a week later, a criminal complaint alleges that Phillips denied having a seizure while driving.
Phillips’ passenger said she was not unconscious before the collision but did not react, the criminal complaint said.
Phillips is facing multiple charges, including homicide by vehicle, aggravated assault by vehicle, unintentional manslaughter and forgery.
