KENNESAW, Ga. -- A Florida woman faces charges in a weekend accident that left a Ringgold woman dead and her husband seriously injured.
The wreck happened shortly before 9 a.m. Saturday on southbound Interstate 75 near the Hickory Grove Road overpass in Kennesaw.
Cobb County Police Sgt. Dana Pierce said 47-year-old Diana Stepp was driving down the road when she sideswiped a Chevrolet Silverado towing a utility trailer filled with farm equipment.
The Chevy veered off the road and overturned in the center median. Its driver, 50-year-old James McNeece, was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition. His wife, 45-year-old Reba McNeece, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Stepp was arrested and charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and failure to maintain lane, both misdemeanors, Pierce said.
Jail records show that, as of Tuesday morning, Stepp has not bonded out of jail.
