'Devastated' Hess Family 'Should Suffer,' Says Victim's Family

Relatives and loved ones of both the driver and a victim of Saturday's fatal crash weigh in on the case after the driver's arraignment Wednesday.

Relatives and loved ones of both the Darriean Hess and a victim of Saturday's fatal crash weigh in on the case after Hess' arraignment Wednesday.
The family members of Darriean Hess were visibly and audibly distraught in court Wednesday, including one moment where one man uttered an expletive to criticize Judge Mark Weaver's decision to issue a high bail amount Hess' family says is prohibitive.

In the video above, various individuals who were at the arraignment for Hess, the 19-year-old Seabrook woman who caused Saturday's fatal crash in Hampton, discuss the case as well as how their respective families are handling the events surrounding the incident.

First to speak is Gordon Wiley, a Danvers, Mass., man who was close friends with one of the victims, Elise Bouchard, 52, of Danvers, Mass. Wiley said Bouchard was "like a sister" to his wife, Pam, whom Bouchard asked to ride in Saturday's cycling event.

Pam Wiley didn't, though, because she was "not ready," according to Gordon Wiley. Wiley said his wife is "devastated" by the events, which Wiley said many of their friends and relatives initially thought claimed Pam Wiley's life.

Cassandra Hess and Magnus Hess, the sister and brother of Darriean Hess, also speak in the video above.

Judge Weaver is taking a risk. Hess can be back out and on the road via a bail bondsman for short money. I'm no magistrate, but I would have tripled the amount, given that two people are dead. Just mu thoughts...

I'm loving the sensationalist journalism. It's very sad that media outlets can't just report the facts and let it go. I wonder what the victims fifth cousin said about it? This is a horrible tragedy which could have been avoided. Darriean Hess will go to jail...probably plead guilty if she's smart...and that will be the end of it. Painting her as anything but foolish on that night at that time is sensationalist fluff. Oh and the evil bastar...guy in the video who said the hess family should suffer....wow. Go to church...you need Jesus. The Hess family will suffer...and so will the victims family. The media needs to stop making stuff like this out to be a competition or a race of sorts. Because in the end...there is no winner...everyone loses.
