A driver accused of slamming into a group of Good Samaritans made a court appearance Monday.

Six people died and two others were injured when they were run over by a van while assisting with an earlier car accident at the intersection of Nowell and Chapel Hill roads in Raleigh on Nov. 1.

Investigators said the driver of the van, Larry Veeder, 32, was drunk when he drove into the victims.

Veeder is charged with DWI and six counts of involuntary manslaughter.

During Monday's court appearance, it was decided that the DWI charges will be handled at the Superior Court level in addition to the manslaughter charges.
