Teen Charged In Fatal Crash
Posted on Apr 03, 2012
An 18-year-old driver has been charged with misdemeanor vehicular homicide and failure to maintain lane in connection with a March 19 accident that claimed the life of a Conyers woman.
Jovaun Egon Clarke, 18, 3313 Westborough Lane, Conyers, was charged in a head-on collision on Tucker Mill Road at its intersection with Springside Court. Killed in the accident was Therese Goldson, 72, of a Valley Woods Circle address.
According to a report by the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office, Clarke was traveling west on Tucker Mill Road at about 5 p.m., approaching Springside Court when his 1996 Honda Accord crossed the center line and struck Goldson's 1999 Honda Civic head-on.
Clarke and Goldson, along with a 13-year-old passenger in Goldson's vehicle, were transported to Atlanta area hospitals for treatment. A 31-year-old passenger in Clark's vehicle was not injured. According to the Sheriff's Office, Goldson died of her injuries several hours later.
Conyers Personal Injury Attorney, Shane Smith, offers his condolences to the family of Mrs. Goldson.
