MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - The driver involved in a crash that killed a local marine was already out on bond for felony possession of a controlled substance, according to officials at the Mobile County District Attorney's Office.
Court records also show Susan Dickerson had been arrested in Baldwin County in May 2013 for failure to appear in court on additional charges.
Dickerson was arrested by Dauphin Island Police July 9 and charged with vehicular homicide in the death of William "Bill" Bramlett.
Investigators said she was driving southbound on the Dauphin Island Bridge June 25, when her vehicle crossed the center line into the northbound lane and hit a motorcycle driven by the local veteran.
Friends and family said Dickerson was never tested for drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident, raising many questions.
Despite the tragedy, the Marine Corps League said it held its first official meeting since the tragedy.
"It was pretty sad occasion but we had a tremendous turn out for the meeting," said A.B. Grantham with the Marine Corps League. "A lot of members showed up to pay their respects to bill and see the memorial."
Friends said Bramlett was leaving the island to attend a Marine Corps League meeting in Mobile when the crash happened.
The veteran suffered multiple injuries including severe head trauma and died as a result of his injuries on June 27, 2013 at USA Medical Center in Mobile, Ala.
Dickerson is expected to appear before Judge Jay York early Thursday, July 11 where the district attorney's office intends to have her bond revoked.
