The former “Melrose Place” actress, Amy Locane-Bovenizer was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and vehicular homicide after a terrible car accident Sunday evening.
Locane-Bovenizer was driving her 2007 Chevy Tahoe when she struck the passenger side of a car turning into a driveway in a Princeton, New Jersey neighborhood. The passenger of the vehicle, 60-year old Helene Seeman, was killed in the accident. The driver, her husband 60-year old Fred Seeman, was sent via Medevac to Johnson University Hospital in critical condition.
Earlier that evening, just a few miles from the crash Locane-Bovenizer was involved in a hit-and-run. The driver of the vehicle hit by Locane-Bovenizer then followed her and says that she was swerving and running into mailboxes the whole way.
After the second accident, Somerset County police officials said that Locane-Bovenizer's eyes were glassy and red and that she smelled of alcohol. Locane-Bovenizer's husband is a wine expert and she admitted to having a few glasses before getting behind the wheel.
Locane-Bovenizer was arraigned Monday with bail set at $50,000. If convicted, she could face up to ten years in prison.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Helene Seeman.
