Woman charged with killing bride on wedding night released from prison just 10 months after deadly DUI crash

The South Carolina woman accused of driving drunk and killing a bride on her wedding night has been released from jail – just 10 months after the deadly DUI crash.

Judge Michael Nettles issued a motion on Friday morning granting the release of Jamie Lee Komoroski – who was indicted on Sept. 12, 2023, on charges of felony DUI resulting in great bodily injury or death and reckless homicide.

On Friday afternoon, Komoroski was seen exiting the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center in North Charleston alongside her father after her $150,000 bond was posted.

She had faced a maximum prison sentence of 25 years.

As part of the conditions of her release, Komoroski will be placed under house arrest in Charleston County and only permitted to leave for medical emergencies or court orders. The accused drunk driver must also wear a SCRAM, or a Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring device that continuously tests a person's sweat for alcohol 24 hours a day.

Komoroski, 26, is also restricted from driving and has surrendered her passport.

Her attorneys released a statement on the judge’s decision that reads: "We have consistently asserted that Jamie is not a flight risk or danger to the community, and she now looks forward to demonstrating her continued commitment to rehabilitation upon her pretrial release from detention."

Komoroski had been in jail since the fatal DUI crash that took the life of a bride on her wedding day on April 28, 2023.

Komoroski was driving her Toyota Camry when she smashed into a golf cart carrying Samantha Miller, 34, and Aric Hutchinson, 36, moments after their wedding in Folly Beach, South Carolina.

The car crash killed Miller at the scene while she was wearing her wedding dress. Hutchinson suffered brain injuries and two others were wounded from the crash.

As Blaze News previously reported, police said that data from Komoroski's car indicated that she was driving about 65 miles per hour in a 25-mile-per-hour zone when she crashed into the golf cart.

Court TV reported, "A lawsuit filed by Hutchinson and Miller’s family against Komoroski accuses her of spending the evening bar hopping at several establishments before getting behind the wheel."

Prosecutors claimed she had a blood alcohol level of 0.261 — three times over the legal blood-alcohol limit.

At the time of the crash, Komoroski reportedly told police, "All the sudden something hit me. I did nothing wrong."
