Columbus police arrested a man Wednesday on misdemeanor charges of second-degree vehicular homicide and failure to yield while turning, reports state.
Charles Davis, 61, was booked into the Muscogee County Jail about 1 p.m. He made his $10,150 bond that day, authorities said.
According to police, Janet Mary Davis, 54, died Feb. 15 after a Jeep Cherokee collided with her Honda Accord on Airport Thruway at the Interstate 185 on-ramp, causing her car to flip. The Accord’s driver, Charles Davis, turned left onto the I-185 on-ramp in front of a Jeep Cherokee that was going east on Airport Thruway, police said.
James Dodson, the 32-year-old driving the Jeep, tried to avoid a collision but couldn’t. The Jeep struck the Accord’s front bumper. The Accord then started spinning clockwise, hitting a curb and flipping. When the Accord stopped, it was upside down on the sidewalk, reports state.
