COVINGTON -- A 17-year-old Oxford woman has been charged in connection with the Jan. 28 crash on Cook Road that took the life of a 56-year-old woman, according to the Georgia State Patrol.
McKenzie Farrow Crowe, of 843 Cornish Mountain Road, Oxford, turned herself in to the Newton County Detention Center Thursday and was released the same day on $23,000 bond, according to an NCSO spokesman. Crowe faces charges of homicide by motor vehicle, DUI and failure to maintain lane.
The crash occurred around 2:48 a.m. near the intersection of Cook and Sockwell roads. Alison Bell of Covington was killed in the accident.
"The crash was a head-on collision between a 2003 Ford Ranger that crossed the centerline and hit a 2002 Ford Explorer," GSP spokesman Gordy Wright said at the time of the incident.
Crowe, an Eastside High School senior, was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta for treatment following the crash.
Alcohol was suspected to be a factor in the crash and charges have been pending against Crowe, awaiting results of the investigation from the GSP Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team.
