Icy Crash Leads to Arrest of Teenage Driver

An Acworth girl who hit an icy patch and lost control of her car faces tragic consequences.   When 17 year old Alexandra Covett skidded into another car, the crash killed her friend in the passenger seat, 18 year old Karli Jobling of Kennesaw. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports Covett is now charged with second- degree vehicular homicide.  And because she is 17, Cobb police are charging her as an adult.

While we don’t know all the circumstances of the case yet, a legal blogger points out that Covett could end up with a criminal record because of ice on the road.
