According to an article on the Atlanta Journal-Contitution on ajc.com, a vehicular homicide and DUI conviction has been made in the death of a woman who fell out of a vehicle on GA 400 in 2010.
The man convicted is Colon Louis Hartzler, 45 years old, from Gainesville. According to police, Hartzler was driving his Jeep while under the influence of alcohol when a passenger in his vehicle, Jenna Fitzgerald, fell out. Hartzler was turning off of Georgia 400 South onto Carlisle Road in Dawson County when the incident occurred. Fitzgerald was then hit by another vehicle and died.
Our sympathies remain with the family and friends of Ms. Fitzgerald.
