The driver in a fatal Wednesday morning accident has been arrested and charged in connection with the death of a Lawrenceville teen.
Sharon Mitchell-Golden, of Stone Mountain, turned herself in to police Thursday morning, according to a Gwinnett County Police Department press release.
She has been charged with second-degree vehicular homicide, a misdemeanor, and a turn lane violation (driving more than 300 feet in the center turn lane).
Rainy weather and low light are considered to be contributing factors, police said. However, speed and alcohol are not considered contributing factors at this time.
Dakota Waters, 17, of Lawrenceville, was killed in the Wednesday morning accident. He was trying to cross Lawrenceville Highway when he was struck.
Police said Thursday that they do not have information on Waters' status as a student or his intended direction.
