Among those who have been driving illegally on the road for the past two years is Anthony Tate. Police say Tate was driving with a revoked licenses and was driving impaired Thursday night in High Point when he allegedly hit Karolyn Chamber’s car head-on killing her.
Court documents have also revealed Tate has been pulled over multiple times for driving with license revoked. However, they show that with each new charge Tate’s fine increased by an average of $10.
Monday morning, Tate made his first appearance in front of a judge from his hospital bed. Documents show that Tate’s previous charges of driving with license revoked caused them to increase Tate’s bond from $1 million to $1.25 million.
Tate will spend the next several weeks being treated for serious injuries he received during the crash.
