A former Georgia State Patrol officer was indicted on charges for his role in a fatal crash back in September 2015.
Anthony “A.J.” Scott has made two appearances before a grand jury. In the first, the jury declined to indict him on charges of homicide by vehicle in the first degree, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, and one count of violation of oath by a public officer.
Scott was recently indicted on charges of reckless driving and speeding for his role in the 2015 crash that killed Kylie Hope Lindsey and Isabella Alise Chinchilla.
All of the charges that Scott faces are misdemeanors, but they could still result in jail time.
Just seconds before colliding with the Nissan carrying the teenage victims, Scott had been traveling at 91 m.p.h. and had slowed to 68 m.p.h. when he struck the vehicle. The speed limit for the area is 55 m.p.h.
The Nissan had been attempting to make a left-hand turn from U.S. 27 onto Holly Springs Road at the time of the collision. Chinchilla and Lindsey, who had been in the back seat, were fatally injured.
Dillon Lewis Wall, who was driving the Nissan, and Benjamin Alan Finkin, the front seat passenger, were also critically injured in the crash.
