A 29-year-old Forsyth County man has been charged for his role in an accident last week that killed a Hall County woman.
Mitchell Brown, of Cumming, has been charged with homicide
by vehicle, reckless driving, driving on the wrong side of the road and a seat
belt violation, according to Stacie Miller, a spokeswoman with the Forsyth
County Sheriff’s Office.
Additional charges are pending, Miller said.
Brown was driving east on Keith Bridge Road in a 2018 Jeep Compass when he allegedly crossed the center line and collided head-on with a 2005 Toyota Scion that was being driven by Candi Tucker, 42, of Gainesville, authorities said.
Authorities responded to the incident at 2:21 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23. Tucker was pronounced dead at the scene.
A female passenger in Tucker's vehicle, Chasity Sawyer, 26, and Brown were both transported by ambulance to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.
Brown turned himself into authorities and is currently in the Forsyth County Jail under no bond.
