COLUMBIA, SC (WSPA) – A driver is accused of hitting 12 mourners attending a funeral at a cemetery in Columbia.

It happened at the Greenlawn Memorial Gardens on Wednesday.

James Brammer Kester is charged with 12 counts of attempted murder, according to Columbia Police.

In a bond hearing on Thursday, he said he was displeased with the SC Dept. of Mental Health (SCDMH) due to a concern about this daughter.

The funeral was for a former administrative assistant with the SCDMH.

Police don’t think he knew the person or family members personally.
