Woman Charged in Valentine's Day Crash That Killed Newlyweds

EDGEWATER, Md. (AP) — Authorities have charged a North Beach woman in a Valentine’s Day crash that killed a newlywed couple.

Anne Arundel County police said in a statement Wednesday that 27-year-old Lauren Scott has been charged with homicide by motor vehicle while impaired, criminally negligent manslaughter by motor vehicle and other offenses. Scott’s being held on $1 million bail.

Police say Scott’s car crossed the center line on an Edgewater road on Feb. 14 and struck a car head-on, killing the driver, 21-year-old Daniel Amos, and his 20-year-old wife, Kayla. Police say the California, Maryland, couple was celebrating their six-month anniversary.

Charging documents state that Scott acknowledged using marijuana and heroin before the crash and medical records show she tested positive for the drugs. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
