A man has been charged with killing a woman and injuring two other people in a March crash on Bells Ferry Road in southwest Cherokee County.
Michael Moore, 30, of Acworth, is charged with first degree vehicular homicide, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, DUI and reckless driving in connection with a March 22 crash at Bells Ferry Road and Gregory Lane, according to an arrest warrant filed Thursday by the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office. A sheriff’s office report shows he was booked into the Cherokee County jail Friday morning.
According to the warrant, Moore was driving between 90 and 100 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone when he struck another vehicle in the drivers’ door. A breath test showed he had blood alcohol content above the legal limit.
Stella Mewborn died from injuries sustained in the crash, authorities said, and two others were seriously injured.
“Due the excessive speed the accused was unable to avoid the collision that occurred and severity of the collision was significantly magnified,” the sheriff’s office said in the warrant.
According to her obituary, Mewborn was 60 and lived in Tate.
As of Monday afternoon, Moore remained in the Cherokee County jail without bond, according to the sheriff’s office.
