It was at the end of a busy day last week in the Westmoreland General District Court that the case of Aaron Anderson entered its next phase. Anderson was originally arraigned in April on charges of a DUI-induced involuntary manslaughter, reckless driving, his third or subsequent DUI, driving with a revoked license, endangerment of a child, and a seatbelt violation.
The incident that led to his arrest happened on the night of April 24, 2018, at around 12:30 p.m. Trooper English, of the Virginia State Police, was on Route 202 that night when a car shot past him westbound at breakneck speeds. Trooper English immediately followed and attempted a traffic stop, but the vehicle kept going at speeds of at least 80 miles per hour. It was when the vehicle zoomed past a tractor trailer on a double-solid line that Trooper English activated his lights. The trooper backed off after realizing that the speeds at this point had gone past the range of 100 miles an hour.
