ECU student charged in wreck that killed sorority sisters

Posted February 4, 2011

— An East Carolina University student has been charged in a November wreck that killed two fellow sorority sisters, Greenville police announced Friday.

Kamil Shaunay Arrington, 21, of Nashville, was charged with two counts of misdemeanor death by vehicle. She was given a $1,000 unsecured bond.

Victoria T'nya-Ann Carter, 20, of Raleigh, and Briana Latrice Gather, 20, of Kernersville, died of injuries sustained in the wreck shortly before dawn on Nov. 20. A third passenger, Taylor Nicole King, 19, of Greenville, was injured.

Police said the three women were in a car driven by Arrington that ran off the road and hit a tree at Greenville Boulevard and Rosewood Drive. Alcohol did not play a role in the wreck, police said.

All four women were members of the pledge class for Delta Sigma Theta at ECU, WNCT News in Greenville reports. Carter also was a member of the school's Black Student Union.

They were going to get their hair done for a pledge event that night, ECU officials told WNCT.

Carter's father told WNCT that police said Arrington fell asleep for a brief moment, just long enough for her foot to rest on the gas pedal and cause the car to accelerate.

    It is not unusual to have a hair appointment that early in the morning. I've done it countless times.

    wildcat -

    Your grammar is horrible, your attitude is poor and you act like a "Christian" that pushes others away from faith. You recommend me to read a book, I recommend you to read the bible and then read it again. Read that book until you truly understand it!! You constantly come on here attacking people and quiet frankly, I've had enough! This is the last I will say because I will NOT stoop to your level. I will speak my peace and be done. I don't know why and I really don't care, but you are one bitter human being.
    I can promise you there is nothing for me to learn from you, other than the polar opposite of the person I want to be. You can respond to this, feel free, but I am DONE. I will not respond back and I will not care to read any other replies from you. I just could not hold it in any longer

    Everyone in life has a story. People have their own personal challenges, struggles and experienced the loss of a loved one. Some tougher than others, but they don't act this way
