Gwinnett Teen Charged in Fatal Wreck

According to an article on, a teen from Gwinnett was arrested and charged in a November 20 crash that killed a man.

Mackenzie Lauren Stephenson, 17-years-old, from Suwanee, was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and failure to yield.

Per the article, the police report stated that Stephenson was at a stop sign on Old Cumming Road when she attempted a left-hand turn onto Ga. 20 into the path of a car driven by Charles Fairchild, 70, from Sugar Hill. Fairchild’s vehicle hit Stephenson’s pick-up truck on the driver’s side.

Police said that both vehicles were driving about 45 miles per hour when the wreck occured and that witnesses reported that Fairchild could not brake in time enough to prevent hitting the truck.

Fairchild was brought to an area hospital for treatment, however, later died. Stephenson was not injured in the wreck.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
