Teen pleads not guilty in deadly crash

McKenzie Farrow Crowe pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of vehicular homicide, DUI and failure to maintain lane. The 18-year-old is accused of causing an accident that killed 56-year-old Allison M. Bell in January.

Charges against Crowe stem from a deadly accident that occurred Jan. 28 on Cook Road. Accoring to Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright, a 2003 Ford Ranger driven by Crowe crossed the center line and hit Campbell's vehicle head-on. Crowe was airlifted to Grady Hospital in Atlanta where she was treated and released.

According to an earlier story, Wright said that "alcohol is suspected and blood was drawn from Ms. Crowe for analysis." According to the accident report from the GSP, Crowe was trapped and had to be extricated from the vehicle. Her listed condition at the time of the crash was "under the influence of medication/drugs/alcohol." The report stated Bell did not have a valid license, nor was she wearing a seatbelt. She was partially ejected from her vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene.

In May Crowe turned herself into the Newton County Jail and bonded out shortly thereafter. She remains out on bond. Her next court date is scheduled for Dec. 18, where she will have a motion status.
