ST. CHARLES COUNTY (KMOV.com) -- A drunk driving suspect violated the conditions of his bail and could be headed to jail.

Earlier this year, police said Henry Evans was driving drunk in a black 2011 Dodge Avenger westbound on Interstate 64, east of Missouri 94. A Missouri state trooper observed Evans traveling in between lanes at a high rate of speed, approximately 80 to 85 miles per hour.

He eventually rear-ended a white 2013 Nissan Xterra, according to court documents.

Inside the Nissan was driver Pamela Yeager and her daughter Melissa. The Nissan hit a concrete wall and flipped over, killing Pamela and seriously injuring Melissa.

“All I remember was waking up at Mercy Hospital with my family and friends around me,” she said.

Evans was released on bail in the case, but had his license suspended and wasn’t allowed to drive.

Recently, he was pulled over in Pine Lawn, which is a violation of his bond. Now the Yaeger family wants police to act.

“He's had more than enough chances. It's time to put him away,” said Melvin Yaeger, Pam’s husband.

The same day the St. Charles County Prosecutor's Office found out about the Pine Lawn tickets, it filed a motion with the court to revoke Evans' bond.

A hearing is set for November 9 to decide the issue.

In the meantime, Evans remains free.

“You've gotten way too many chances and you need to go to jail to get some help,” Melissa said. “That's all I want. All I want for him is to get some help and want him to realize what he's doing is wrong.”

We're told that Evans’ trial in the death of Pamela Yaeger is scheduled for this January.

Melissa says she plans on being in the courtroom on November 9 to see if his bond is revoked.

Melvin just wants justice.

“I would say to him you're lucky you didn't die or you're lucky you're not getting the death penalty. You're lucky, you took my wife and my daughter's mother,” he said. “Don't look for sympathy in my heart because I don't have it for you.”
