Atlanta Police Now Requesting Public’s Help to Find Hit and Run Driver

Posted by Richard Lawson | Oct 23, 2018 | 0 Comments

APD has reported that there has still been no luck in finding the driver who has been accused of hitting and killing a woman on Moreland Avenue last month. The victim's sisters and detectives are now pleading for help from the public. 

According to reports, the woman was trying to cross the street Friday night on Moreland Avenue near Custer Avenue when she was hit by a car. Investigators and police believe the driver then fled the scene.

The Atlanta Police Department are now asking for the public's help. In today's post, as a Georgia DUI Lawyer, I will outline the offense of vehicular homicide.

Vehicular Homicide in Georgia

Georgia Law separates the criminal offense of vehicular homicide in Georgia by dividing it into two separate degrees.

First degree vehicular homicide is considered a felony offense. To put it simply, vehicular homicide in the first degree is when a death results from any of the following criminal offenses: 

Second degree vehicular homicide is considered a misdemeanor offense. Vehicular homicide in the second degree is when a death results from a minor traffic offense not listed out above.
