Wolmert's friend, who has not been identified, died at the scene.Police say witnesses have told them they saw the Wolerts' Mercedes driving fast down Old Yorktown Road around 6:30 p.m. Witnesses said moments before the crash they saw Wolert involved in a road rage incident with another car.Investigators say they are still looking into witness accounts, and whether or not Wolert was drinking before the accident. This isn't the first time she has driven under the influence.
