Darriean Hess, the teen driver who caused a fatal crash in September that killed two bicyclists, waived her probable cause hearing in Hampton District Court on Tuesday morning.

According to court officials, Hess elected to waive the hearing that was scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. Hess was previously ordered held on $50,000 bail. Now that she has waived probable cause, prosecutors can present her case to a Rockingham County Grand Jury for possible indictment.

Hess, 19, of Seabrook, is charged with two counts of Class B felony negligent homicide and two Class B felony counts of second-degree assault for her role in Saturday's collision, which killed two bicyclists. 

Hess has claimed the crash occurred after she took her eyes off the road while traveling over the Neil R. Underwood Bridge at a high speed, although she was silent during her video arraignment Wednesday, often looking down or at a Rockingham County House of Corrections monitor displaying Judge Mark Weaver.

She out on bail?

Why does mediais horrid keep getting it wrong? You obviously don't know because a police officer testified that Hess herself admitted taking drugs prior to accident. Take the time to read the story on her dealer's hearing before you post. You are getting information ass-backwards

yes, she is out on bail, bond whatever. A day or so after her lawyer and sister insisted there was no way they could come up with $50,000, it magically appeared and out she popped
lawrencius fine October 10, 2013 at 02:00 PM
Maybe media ishorrid, with his/her inside sources, would care to comment on that?
eb50 October 11, 2013 at 06:17 AM
I hope dairean keeps singing and we get more dealers off the street.

Is Darriean hooked up with electronic monitoring while serving the house arrest her attorney promised? How can we trust she will remain at home? I am sure she promised the officer she would never drive again after her initial traffic stop. She ignored the law and drove again hours later and KILLED two people! How can I be sure she won't leave the house and kill more people?

She was released the day we attended the wake. I hope she is on a monitor because she has already shown she does no abide by the law.....

Media ishorrid ....please tell what you know? Certain folks appear to get special treatment. I wonder if this is one of them......you spoke, now finish the tale. Who destroyed what evidence? Can't be left at that. Was that you friend smashed into the guardrail while dairean was driving high on drugs? No, friend you better start talking because justice is going to prevail this time.

I think media ishorrid is trying to stir the pot. Desperate times call for desperate measures and the common sense thing for her to do is make things up. I think we will find out one way or any other what the tic screen says. They wouldn't destroy it as if to conceal evidence, since she was never charged with anyth
Tim Savage October 16, 2013 at 06:46 AM
ing drug related.
eb50 October 18, 2013 at 06:30 AM
Or she's high
eb50 October 29, 2013 at 07:53 PM
Any update on this?
Kthompson812 December 06, 2013 at 09:16 AM
It's been very quiet abut this case. I am sure the toxicology results should be in by now? Isn't that public record? I'd like to know where this case stands and how soon before justice is served?
Rusty J Cell December 06, 2013 at 04:37 PM
Was just wondering the same?
eb50 December 17, 2013 at 05:22 AM
4 drugs at once.that's quite a cocktail.
Tim Savage December 17, 2013 at 06:38 AM
Media ishorrid- "it wa destroyed cuz she was clean. I would know. Leave it at that"..... Good call. Thank you for proving to us all that you did not know a thing about what was going on in this case.
eb50 January 07, 2014 at 06:19 AM
Never forget! What's going on here
Rusty J Cell January 07, 2014 at 04:01 PM
