Driver charged with murder, DWI is Friday crash
COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A Leland man is charged with murder after a car crash on US 74/76 Friday in Columbus County. Today a judge set Pierre Waler’s bond at $1 million.
Investigators say Pierre Walker, 26, is charged with second degree murder and habitual driving while intoxicated for his role in the death of 61-year-old Martha Mintz.
Troopers say Walker did not have a license due to three previous DWIs when he crossed over the median hitting Mintz’s Chevrolet HHR nearly head-on near Delco Friday afternoon.
Investigators suspect Walker was under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident.
