Three Killed In Greensboro Car Accident That Involved Alcohol
Posted on Jul 23, 2010
A North Carolina woman and her son are being charged with helping a minor purchase and consume alcohol – in this case, the teen who was served alcohol crashed a car and killed three people in February.
According to My Fox Channel 8, 51-year-old Theresa Brunkner and her son, 22-year-old Kyle Brunkner, have been charged by North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement agents on three counts of aiding and abetting a person less than 21 years of age in possessing an alcoholic beverage.
North Carolina authorities say that 20-year-old Amanda Sperduti of Winston-Salem was given alcohol at the Brunkner’s home on the night of February 13, 2010. Shortly after leaving the home, Sperduti crashed the vehicle, killing three passengers, all of whom were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders: 18-year-old Sascha Adela Hoffman of Whitsett, 23-year-old Scott Wayne Bedwell of Greensboro, and 18-year-old Taylor Leigh McCaskill of Brown Summit. Sperduti herself was seriously injured in the car accident and charged with three felony counts of death by motor vehicle and several other related charges.
Sperduti had a blood alcohol content of 0.20, almost three times the legal limit in North Carolina. All three passengers had also been drinking. Cans of beer and a bottle of liquor were found in the car. NC Troopers estimate that Sperduti was traveling about 90 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone at the time of the DUI car accident. The deadly accident took place on Fairgrove Church Road off Highway N.C. 150 in Browns Summit, NC.
