According to state troopers, Joshuah Dodd is now facing a misdemeanor death by motor vehicle in addition to the failure to yield charge that he received last week.

His friend, 21-year-old Hannah Smith of Swansboro who was a passenger in the car, was killed after he crashed into another car last Friday night on Highway 58 in Cape Carteret. Smith was buried Thursday.

    Hannah was my friend. She was a beautiful person--when I first heard about this, I wanted an eye for an eye. I wanted Joshuah to pay. But then I went to her service, and I saw how that young man was sobbing the hardest of anyone there. He was sitting in the family section. The Miller/Smiths want Joshuah as part of their family. They do not wish him ill will. This is a tragic ACCIDENT. A MISTAKE. If her family can forgive and embrace him with love, then (Seriously), you really don't have anything to say about this. That man has to live with this for the rest of his life. That is punishment enough.

    Are you kidding,(Not good). ACCIDENT? Seriously did you read, or better yet you should read before you post. You must have missed the part of failure to yield!!! I am sure she didnt ask to die she didnt tell him to keep going. So yes he gets what he deserves.

    This is so wrong. He did NOT mean to hurt or kill her. What happened to the term "accident"? The law needs to leave this alone.....I am sure he is suffering enough!
