A Commerce woman was arrested last week on two charges of homicide by vehicle in connection with a wreck two years ago that killed two people and injured five others.
Tiffany Renee Dicara, 22, 410 Heritage Hills, Commerce, was the driver of a 1999 Mercury Cougar traveling east on Hwy. 326 that pulled into the path of a 2006 Chevy Tahoe SUV that was traveling north on U.S. 441. The SUV T-boned the smaller vehicle.
Shane Kennedy, 22, of Danielsville, and Laura Ashley Epps, 19, of Hull, died at the scene. Both were passengers in Dicara’s vehicle.
The charges came following an investigation by the Georgia State Patrol’s Specialized Accident Reconstruction Team.
Dicara and Cody Bishop, 22, of Blairsville, who was also a passenger in the Cougar, were both transported to Athens Regional Medical Center.
All three occupants of the Tahoe were transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Athens with visible injuries. They included the driver, Thomaas Gearing, 38, Jennifer Gearing, 33, and Haley Fricks, 10, all of Hull.
