A 20-year-old North Port woman was arrested this week in connection to a double fatal crash that happened last Sunday near the intersection of U.S. 41 and West Villages Parkway.
Police say Samantha A. King was driving drunk at the time of the crash. She is now charged with two counts of DUI Manslaughter and five counts of DUI with Property Damage.
As fans were leaving the first Atlanta Braves game at the new ballpark, King rear-ended a car that was stopped. Both the driver and passenger in that car later died from their injuries.
