The sister of a nurse from Raleigh who suffered fatal personal injuries in a head-on collision on the night of December 2 expressed outrage on December 4 that the man charged in the crash had been released on bond.
Police charged 24-year-old Aleksey Glazunov with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle and aggressive driving in the crash in which 57-year-old Teresa Bagley Weintraub died.
According to police, Glazunov was in the process of passing another vehicle when he lost control of his vehicle and collided head-on with Weintraub’s car near the Brentwood Road intersection. Police say she was on the way to work at Duke Raleigh Hospital at the time.
According to Glazunov’s arrest record, he had a history of speeding violations. The temporary tag on his vehicle had been issued the day of the accident. Still, he was released on $2,000 bond.
If convicted, Glazunov faces a maximum penalty of five months in prison. The charge previously carried a penalty of up to four months, but this past summer, legislators toughened the penalty.
Glazunov is set to stand trial on December 21.
