Suzanne Tuberville almost faced manslaughter charges.

In November of 2011, Suzanne Tuberville was in a car crash in Lubbock, Texas.

She allegedly ran a red light and T-boned the car of 73-year-old Nelda Purdy and husband 86-year-old Ira Purdy.

The couple was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Suzanne came out with light bruising and a few scratches.

Nelda pulled through, but her husband was in intensive care for four months before he eventually died from his injuries.

Suzanne possibly faced manslaughter or criminally negligent homicide charges pending Ira Purdy's autopsy.

The autopsy came back proving his death was caused by the accident, but the Lubbock police dismissed the case by saying, “Case is closed. We don’t anticipate any further charges to be filed.” 

Suzanne was given a citation and the case was dismissed Feb. 15, 2012, after she took a defensive driving class.
