ATLANTA (AP) -- A former Georgia state trooper has been charged with vehicular homicide in a crash that killed the wife of an Atlanta Braves trainer.
Fulton County District Attorney's Spokeswoman Yvette Jones says Donald Crozier was indicted Tuesday in the death of 54-year-old Kathy Porter. Porter, her husband, Jeff, their son and a family friend were en route to the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 31, 2011, when authorities say Crozier crashed into the SUV the Porters were in.
State patrol officials say Crozier was trying to assist another officer and was driving with his sirens and lights on.
Jones says the 10-year-veteran is also accused of reckless driving and violation of oath by a public officer.
It's unclear if Crozier has an attorney.
