Melissa Hancock entered a guilty plea in Virginia Beach court Monday for a DUI charge against her stemming from a fatal crash in November 2017. She was expected to plead guilty to a DUI charge in court last Wednesday, but at the time, hadn’t been served on the charge yet.
Hancock, who was in Lifetime’s Little Women: Atlanta, pleaded guilty in May to involuntary manslaughter, driving the wrong way and failure to obey a highway sign. Due to a clerical error, she did not enter a guilty plea to the DUI charge against her.
Virginia State Police said Melissa Hancock was driving a 2011 Cadillac westbound on I-264 in the eastbound lanes when she hit a 2009 Mazda driven by 29-year-old Daniel Dill.
Dill was taken to Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital where he died from his injuries the following day.
Hancock will be in court October 10, 2018, for sentencing.
