Driver pleads guilty in Remount Road death

The Warren Sentinel

FRONT ROYAL — The local man charged in relation to a 2016 car wreck that killed a Front Royal woman pleaded guilty this week to one felony count of reckless involuntary DUI manslaughter.

Trevor Bryant Lee, 29, of Front Royal, pleaded Monday in Warren County Circuit Court, according to online court records.

He is due in court Sept. 12 for a pre-sentence report hearing.

The charge stems from a Feb. 29, 2016, wreck in which Brandi Nicole Cook, 24, was a passenger in Leeís 1996 Honda Civic, police reported.

The car was southbound in the 800 block of Remount Road just after midnight, when it crossed the centerline and ran off the road, police said. The car hit a tree passenger-side first, and Cook was pronounced dead at the scene.
