Allen McIntire was arrested on March 15th. The arrest came in connection with a single-vehicle crash that occurred back in January. The crash killed McIntire’s 73-year-old passenger. The story was found on Patch.com.
On January 10, McIntire was driving a Chevrolet Nova westbound along White Road near Sutalee Ridge Trail off of Highway 20 in Canton, Georgia. McIntire left the roadway and became airborne, hitting a tree.
McMahon received extensive injuries from the crash as did McIntire, who was ejected from the vehicle. Both men were transported to the hospital where McMahon ultimately succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the accident.
McIntire was charged with both first and second-degree vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, reckless driving, speeding, driving too fast for conditions and weaving over the roadway.
He was booked into the Cherokee County Adult Detention Facility. He was later released on a $14,712 bond.
Like in many other states, the charge of vehicular homicide in Georgia may either be a misdemeanor or a felony. In the case of a vehicular homicide while driving under the influence, the charge is almost always a felony. A conviction may result in a prison sentence of up to 15-years in prison. Even a misdemeanor charge of vehicular homicide in the second degree may warrant a sentence of up to 12 months in jail. Patch reports on a man accused of DUI and both first-degree vehicular homicide and second-degree vehicular homicide.
