Driver indicted for vehicular homicide
March ‘07 accident resulted in death of BCHS student
A 19-year-old has been indicted in the death of a fellow Banks County High School student following a one-vehicle accident during March of last year.
Chase Poole, of 321 Borders Road, Commerce, was indicted by a Banks County Grand Jury last week for homicide by vehicle in the first degree in addition to reckless driving. Banks County sheriff Charles Chapman said Poole turned himself in Saturday morning to the county jail and has since bonded out.
The accident, which occurred on Hwy. 98 between Homer and Maysville, resulted in the death of Ashley Blevins, a senior at BCHS at the time. In addition to Blevins’ death, Poole was also injured in the accident as was another passenger, Trace Lamfier, also a BCHS student.
Blevins was reportedly ejected from the vehicle. According to the Georgia State Patrol investigation, Poole, who suffered head injuries in the accident, attempted to overcorrect the vehicle and lost control.
Piedmont Judicial Circuit District Attorney Rick Bridgeman said he could not comment on the case since it is ongoing. He did say vehicular homicide in the first degree carries a maximum sentence of three to 15 years,while the reckless driving charge carries a maximum sentence of 12 months.
Poole’s arraignment is set for May 29.
