A 19-year-old is charged with vehicular homicide after causing an Atlanta car crash that killed a two-year-old boy.
Kelly Cantry was driving a white car on Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway when she swerved and crossed the yellow line into the path of on-coming semi truck. The 18-wheeler careened off the road and into the Auto Zone parking lot where the big rig hit several cars.
Two-year-old Zion Churney and his 14-year-old cousin were in a parked car in the parking lot. The large truck crashed into the car, and the two boys were injured. They were taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta where Zion died from his injuries. An adult was also injured.
Canty is charged with first degree vehicular homicide, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, and driving without license, insurance, or tag. Canty was denied bond and remains in Fulton County Jail.
The Law Offices of Shane Smith offer our sincere condolences to the family of Zion Churney.
