Driver faces 3 felonies after fatal crash; Nashville woman hurt, passenger dead after vehicle found inside Nashville supermarket

Almost a week after man was killed and a woman hospitalized and then jailed in a June 3 crash that resulted in a car inside the Nashville IGA, additional charges have been filed by Brown County Prosecuting Attorney Theodore Adams.

Amanda Beaver, 41, of Nashville, was hospitalized and later released to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office after police say she drove a 2003 Chevy Trailblazer into the IGA. Randall Duncan, a passenger in the vehicle, died in the accident.

Preliminarily, Beaver was charged with:

Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated — Resulting in Death (Level 4 Felony)

Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated — Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury (Level 6 Felony)

Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated — Endangerment (A Misdemeanor)

Criminal Mischief (A Misdemeanor)

Criminal Recklessness. (B Misdemeanor)

On Friday, Adams added a third felony charge — reckless homicide.

“The Brown County Prosecutor’s Office would first like to extend our deepest sympathies to Mr. Randall Duncan’s friends and family,” Adams said in a release.

“Victim services of the Brown County Prosecutor’s Office have already been implemented.”

Adams went on to add that the case is still an active criminal investigation and additional charges are likely to be added.

Beaver is scheduled to appear in Brown County Circuit Court on June 9 at 2:30 p.m.

According to police, the Trailblazer was found inside the IGA when police arrived shortly after 11 p.m. on June 3. “We found the vehicle inside the building,” BCSO Public Information Officer Josh Stargell told the Brown County Democrat. “(Beaver) was taken to the hospital for injuries and later released to our custody.”

According to police, they received word that a vehicle was inside the IGA, located at 30 Hawthorne Drive. When police arrived, they found Beaver and Duncan. Duncan was trapped inside the vehicle. Beaver was taken to IU Health in Bloomington. Police say they believe alcohol is a contributing factor.

According to police, one eyewitness said he saw a vehicle moving at a high rate of speed go into the IGA building. Police said there was no braking or attempt to avoid hitting the building. Police said they asked Beaver if she was the driver and she nodded her head that she was. Police added that Beaver consented to a breath test but could not complete it. They said that she became hysterical after being informed Duncan had died.

She was treated at the scene for a broken foot and bloody nose and taken to the hospital.

Beaver is being held at the Brown County Jail on a $100,000 bond — which, according to Adams, is more than three times the normal amount. Adams said his office will argue that the bond remain high to alleviate safety concerns for the public.
