A Sharpsburg man has been charged with vehicular homicide in the death of a 25-year-old woman in a July 19 single-vehicle accident in Peachtree City.
Matthew G. Sherman, 22, was charged with homicide by vehicle – first degree, DUI, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane, according to Fayette County Jail records.
Peachtree City Police Department spokesman Chris Hyatt said officers at 1:40 a.m. responded to the site of the accident on Golfview Drive off Flat Creek Road.
The vehicle left the roadway and was wrapped around a tree, Hyatt said.
