NH driver charged with striking 2 cyclists is released on bail; legislators propose law change

A New Hampshire woman charged with plowing her car into a group of bicyclists, killing two Massachusetts women, has been released on $50,000 bail.

Nineteen-year-old Darriean Hess, of Seabrook, was charged with two counts of negligent homicide in last weekend's crash. Police say she was driving without a license when she ran into the bicyclists competing in a century ride.

Hess' attorney says she's "absolutely grief-stricken."

Meanwhile, legislators are considering changes to the penalties for driving without a license.

Hampton Rep. Renny Cushing has filed a bill that would make any moving violation by an unlicensed driver an automatic misdemeanor, which could allow the driver to be arrested.

Police say Hess had been stopped on the same road eight hours before and ticketed for driving without a license and speeding.
