The driver, 48-year-old Rodrick Motley, who was a veteran employee with FedEx , was ejected from the truck and later died.

Police say Batts was fleeing the scene of a different accident when she collided with the FedEx truck.

Motley was a father of four. He is survived by his wife and his children.

Batts has numerous violations on her driving record, from driving on a suspended license to speeding and causing an accident.

She is being held on half million cash surety bond.
