Winston-Salem Newsman To Plead Guilty In Fatal Accident

A former Winston-Salem television news anchor will plead guilty to charges stemming from a drunken-driving accident in which a man was killed. That word is from his attorney.

One of the attorneys for W-X-I-I anchor Tolly Carr says whenever his client's case is set up in court, they anticipate entering a guilty plea.

Authorities say on March eleventh, Carr drove around a barricade and through a construction zone, then ran off the road. His pickup hit the steps of a business, vaulted over a wall and struck and dragged Casey Bokhoven as he walked home after an eating out with friends. A passenger in Carr's truck was injured.

Blood drawn from Carr four hours after the wreck showed his blood-alcohol content was point-13, which is over the legal limit of point-oh-eight.

Carr is charged with felony death by motor vehicle, felony serious injury by motor vehicle and D-W-I.
