Police say that around 8:15 p.m. on Sunday, August 19, 2018, Redd was driving his 2000 Ford Ranger pickup truck along with his passenger, 17-year-old Kaitlyn Arnold of Douglasville. Redd allegedly drove the Ford Ranger over the center line of White Road, just south of Factory Shoals Road in South Cobb and careened into 50-year-old Simone Myles from Mableton, who was driving an Audi A5 at the time of the crash.
