Just days after being named in a wrongful death lawsuit in relation to a March wreck that took the lives of two people on U.S. 119 at Varilla Curve, a Virginia man has been indicted by the Bell County Grand Jury on the charges he is currently being held on at the Bell County Detention Center.
According to the indictment, Anthony W. Brewer, 42, of Pennington Gap, Virginia, is indicted on three counts of leaving the scene of an accident/failure to render aid, operating on a suspended/revoked operator’s license, and commercial driver’s licensed-operating while suspended. The indictment further states the Bell County Grand Jury charges that on March 24, in Bell County, Brewer left the scene of an accident/hit and run when he was found to have left the scene of an accident in which the vehicle he was operating struck a vehicle operated by Tony D. Hatfield and a vehicle operated by Lavonda G. Hensley. The indictment goes on to say that at the same time and place that Brewer committed the offense of operating on a suspended or revoked license when he was found to be operating a motor vehicle while his license was suspended or revoked. The indictment ends saying that at the same time and place, Brewer committed the offense of commercial driver license — operating vehicle while suspended, when he was found to be operating a commercial vehicle while his commercial driver’s license was revoked.
At the time of his arrest in March, Brewer was also served a bench warrant for court. The pay or stay warrant had an $808 pay or stay bond. Brewer’s other charges have a combined cash bond total of $550,000 and he has not posted bond to date.
Brewer is scheduled to be in court on June 17.
