The tragic accident occurred at the Savannah Westin Golf Club and Resort. Martin was charged with vehicular homicide, racing and reckless driving and is being held without bail. The 82-year-old was scheduled to perform that day at a hotel in Savannah, a jazz brunch he had performed for the past 13 years.
