Woman charged in deadly crashes in Gwinnett, DeKalb

Lawrenceville police have charged a woman linked to two deadly crashes that occurred on Sunday.

On Wednesday morning, police issued several warrants against Sabrina Townes, 32, including ones for first degree vehicular homicide, reckless driving and driving with suspended license, according to Channel 2 Action News.

She was taken into custody Sunday after being involved in a seven-vehicle crash on Ga. 316 in Gwinnett County that killed Pamela Leake, 39, of Lawrenceville.

Townes was granted a $300,000 bond in a vehicular homicide case in DeKalb County, Channel 2 reported. She is accused of killing 47-year-old Lymeng Lim in a four-vehicle accident on Lawrenceville Highway in 2012.

A detective testified that police believe Townes lied to them after the DeKalb County wreck when she said another person had been driving the vehicle and fled.

Townes was transferred from the Gwinnett to the DeKalb jail and was in court today. Her next hearing is scheduled for June 16, Channel 2 said.
