An 18-year-old Lawrenceville teen is facing vehicular homicide charges in connection with the Sept. 26 accident that resulted in the death of Devin Durden.
The teenage driver who reportedly caused the accident that resulted in fatal injuries to Buford High School graduate and football star Devin Durden has been arrested.
Caylie Edge, 18, of Lawrenceville, was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on Oct. 4 on charges of vehicular homicide and failure to yield. She was released a few hours later on a $32,450 bond according to jail records.
Atlanta personal injury attorney David Van Sant is certainly no fan of putting teens in jail, but what he is adamant about is safe driving.
“Teens need to take driving serious. They have become far too casual. When you get behind the wheel you need to be 100 percent in control of yourself. If you are not, you need to call your parents and have them come get you. Drinking and driving kills. Texting and driving kills. Reckless driving kills. Driving is a privilege not a right, and teens must take that responsibility seriously,” Van Sant says.
