Teenager Charged for Fatal Vehicle Crash in Grady County, Georgia


April 28, 2019

GRADY COUNTY, GA. – According to an online news report posted at timesenterprise.com, a teenager has been criminally charged in connection with a fatal vehicle crash that occurred in Grady County, Georgia. The Thomasville Times-Enterprise reports that the crash killed a high school senior.* 

An 18-year-old girl was taken into custody April 16 for her involvement in a deadly vehicle accident that occurred in January 2019, according to the report. The crash tragically killed another teen who was a senior at Thomasville High School. The Thomasville Times-Enterprise says that the Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team with Georgia State Patrol had been investigating the accident and concluded its analysis this month.

Troopers recommended that the 18-year-old girl, who was driving one of the cars and is a student at Brookwood School, face charges of vehicular homicide, reckless driving, and following too closely. The news report says the teen turned herself into authorities on the charges and was then released the same day on a bond of $10,000. 

The accident took place on the morning of January 29 on Highway 319 in Grady County. Troopers reported that the 18-year-old girl crashed into the victim’s car from behind, which caused the victim’s car to run off the roadway and hit a tree. The girl’s car rotated off of the highway and came to a stop in a ditch. 

Troopers said that both drivers were wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident, and they were the only people in both cars. The victim, an 18-year-old male, was reportedly a baseball player about to graduate from high school.
