Winder, GA (December 26, 2018) – A fatal hit-and-run has been investigated by police and now police have made an arrest in relation to the accident that took one life.
Last night on Christmas Eve, 42-year-old Sandy Michelle Wilson of Winder was arrested and charged with felony vehicular homicide and a variety of other traffic violations.
66-year-old Marvin Barnes and his dog had been struck by a vehicle when somebody in a vehicle ran off the side of the road and struck them. The sheriff’s office investigating the accident offered a reward as they were looking for the person responsible for the accident.
