BELL COUNTY, TX (KXXV) -

The driver who hit tow truck driver Scott Bowles in 2017 has a trial date set.

On Friday, Sybil Warrick's attorney asked for a jury trial to be scheduled, and a November 26, 2018 date was set.

There is also another pre-trial hearing set for October, and Warrick could still enter a guilty plea then.

Bowles died shortly after being brought to the hospital after the accident in May 2017. 

Bowles was responding with his tow truck to another accident when he was hit. 

Stephanie Bowles sat down exclusively with Central Texas News Now in May 2018 and shared the police reports from the day her husband died.

"Finally, finally something's happened," Stephanie Bowles said. 

Since the tragic death of her husband on May 11, 2017, Stephanie Bowles has been fighting for justice. 

"I mean I don't want to take away from someone else's life, but in actuality, it's going to. This person killed Scott, and we've been waiting almost a full year," Bowles added. 

Bowles said a weight has been lifted off of her shoulders as the driver who hit Scott, Sybil Warrick, was arrested in Arkansas and charged with criminally negligent homicide. 

"I was grateful that it wasn't just an infraction against the Slow Down, Move Over law, that she will actually face felony consequences which criminally negligent homicide falls under a state jail felony," Bowles said.  

Stephanie said the tears she shed today were tears of relief.

"Things pop up on Facebook with your memories and the things that come about, and you see those and you're like that was the last picture I took, I'll never have that. All I have is memories.... and to know that her's may be stalled for a little while, I wouldn't say it makes it feel better, but you know, at least, I know that she's going to know what she took from us," Bowles added. 

Now, for her sake, Stephanie says she needs to work on forgiveness.

"At this point, I'm trying to figure out where to go with that, and how to go about the forgiveness because I don't know how, how you can forgive somebody for taking so much," Bowles said.   

In February, a grand jury asked for Warrick's medical records in relation to the case. Bowles' wife, Stephanie, has been fighting for justice for her husband since the accident.

Bowles has been a strong advocate of the "Slow down or move over" law, and she continues to drive her late husband's tow truck in his memory.
