Wolmert's friend, who has not been identified, died at the scene.Police say witnesses have told them they saw the Wolerts' Mercedes driving fast down Old Yorktown Road around 6:30 p.m. Witnesses said moments before the crash they saw Wolert involved in a road rage incident with another car.Investigators say they are still looking into witness accounts, and whether or not Wolert was drinking before the accident.
