Elliott Sapp was the first to reach what was left of Amelia Hiltz’s Honda Odyssey, barely believing that a person could have been driving this twisted hunk of metal, he testified in the third day of trial of a woman who drove the wrong way on River Watch Parkway.
But peering inside what was left of the interior, Sapp saw Hiltz and nearly wished he hadn’t.
“She looked terrible. I was holding her hand. I was wondering what was taking the police so long. I kept saying ‘Ma’am, I’m here.’ I kept thinking, ‘I don’t want her to die alone.’”
A North Augusta woman was arrested Tuesday after a six-month investigation of suspected drug activity in her home.
Brenda Stingley, 61, of 214 West Buena Vista Avenue, was taken to Aiken County Detention Center after a search of her residence turned up several pills of prescription narcotics, guns and a large sum of cash, according to North Augusta Lt. Tim Thornton.
Stingley is charged with distribution of controlled substances, possession of a controlled prescription without a prescription and distribution within a half-mile of a park.
