Washington Man Accused of Killing Golf Cart Driver Charged
TACOMA (AP) — An accused hit-and-run driver in Washington has been charged with striking and killing the driver of a golf cart and then T-boning another vehicle.
The News Tribune reports 49-year-old Ty Fuller had been charged Wednesday with vehicular manslaughter, failure to remain at a fatal accident, third-degree assault and failure to remain at an injury accident. Fuller pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Court Commissioner Meagan Foley has set his bail at $1 million.
Fuller had been arrested at a house Tuesday after he fled two traffic scenes. Investigators say Fuller had been traveling about 60-80 mph when he struck the golf cart. The driver died at the scene and the passenger had been taken to a nearby hospital.
Fuller is accused of then driving into oncoming traffic to get away, sideswiping a Chevrolet Impala.
