   Jamie Lee Komoroski Biography

Poignant video clips show the final hours of a newlywed woman gunned down shortly before she was killed by a drunk driver, including her leaving her wedding under a canopy of sparklers.

Samantha Miller, 34, was also filmed at her wedding ceremony to Aric Hutchinson, 36.

The clearly smitten couple were filmed enjoying their first bite of cake together and having their first dance on what Miller’s family says was the best day of her life.

But tragedy struck just hours later when 25-year-old Jamie Lee Komoroski plowed into the couple at 65mph as they were riding in the back of a golf cart on Folly Beach. The impact killed Miller and seriously injured Hutchinson.

Miller’s sister, Mandi Jenkins, and her mother, Lisa Miller, have since spoken about her grief, and Lisa collapsed when she criticized Komoroski for “ripping” her daughter.

The newlyweds were riding in the back of the cart, just two blocks from their home, when Komoroski rear-ended them while going 65 mph in a 25 mph zone.

Samantha Miller

Samantha Miller, 34, and Aric Hutchinson, 36, celebrated their nuptials moments before they were rear-ended by a drunk driver.

Sam was killed instantly in the crash, and her husband was left in critical condition after the vehicle rolled multiple times more than 100 yards.

A wedding photo of the couple shows them sharing a piece of their wedding cake.

“At the beginning of the golf cart ride, she said that she wanted the night to last forever. It was the best night of her lives.

I never thought he would pass us and my beautiful sister and the 150 people there.

‘That person made a careless mistake and it’s not a mistake, it’s a life-changing event. He was incredibly special and now he’s not here.

Her mother described seeing the lights and hearing sirens as they got ready for bed after the ceremony, and immediately texted Miller to see how she was doing.

They set out to see what had happened after her beloved relative did not respond.

Lisa said: ‘I got out of my truck with no shoes on, running and yelling Sam. He literally ran into my daughter at 65 mph.

‘Sam and Aric were in the back of the golf cart, she basically ran into my son.

The newlyweds were riding in the back of the cart, just two blocks from their home, when Komoroski rear-ended them while going 65 mph in a 25 mph zone.


Her family paid tribute to her for being ‘incredibly special’ as her mother, Lisa Miller, criticized Komoroski for ‘ripping off’ her daughter and her new husband.

Aric has had reconstruction surgery and is set to have another, as well as suffering numerous broken bones and a brain injury.

‘Aric has a very long physical journey and a longer emotional journey. They couldn’t be more perfect for each other.

Sam’s family has created a GoFundMe for her, as well as a joint one created by Aric’s family.

Komoroski was first charged with speeding on May 31, 2018 in Horry County, South Carolina, home of Myrtle Beach and Coastal Carolina University, where Komoroski attended school.
