Nearly two years since the car accident that claimed the life of a 67-year-old retired DOT worker, the woman accused of causing the accident entered a pre-trial order in Superior Court Tuesday.

Annie Rose Evans-Glodowski, 41, was charged with first degree vehicular homicide, second degree vehicular homicide, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane. The charges stem from a head-on collision on Aug. 5, 2009, which killed Larry John Marchesseau and sent Evans-Glodowski to the hospital with two broken legs.

According to Georgia State Patrol Trooper Shaun Browder, Evans-Glodowski, who was driving a 2006 Honda, went around a curve heading south on Lower River Road and traveled into the northbound lane of traffic, striking Marchesseau's 1985 Chevrolet C20. Marchesseau was killed instantly when his vehicle was hit head-on.

"The Chevrolet tried to get out of way, but there just wasn't time," Browder said in a previous story. "The driver of the Honda attempted to stop - there were skid marks - but it happened too fast."

Both drivers had to be extracted from their vehicles by the Jaws of Life. Marchesseau was killed immediately and Evans-Glodowski was flown to Atlanta Medical Center.

Evans-Glodowski turned herself in at the Newton County Detention Center at 10:39 p.m., Aug. 13, 2010. She bonded out shortly thereafter.

In court, Evans-Glodowski walked with the aid of a cane, while several of Marchesseau's loved ones sat stoically in the back of the courtroom. Her case will run its course in the courtroom of Superior Court Judge Eugene Benton.
