Senator, constituent push for mandatory blood tests in fatal crashes (access required)

Drivers in North Carolina who are criminally charged in any case involving a death by vehicle may be subject to a mandatory blood test under legislation proposed by Sen. Doug Berger. Marbeth Holmes' parents, James Preston and Mary Charles Holmes (pictured), were killed in a head-on collision near their Louisburg home on June 26, 2008. Then-22-year-old Louis Mahler Joyner later pled guilty to two counts of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. His sentence: two years of probation and his driver's license was revoked for two years.
