A passenger was killed Sunday morning when a vehicle turning into a Gwinnett County Kroger was T-boned, police said.

The vehicle was turning from the westbound lanes of Atlanta Highway into the Kroger at the intersection with Rosebud Road and collided with another vehicle headed east around 7 a.m., according to Gwinnett police. The passenger, identified as 38-year-old Rochelle Vinson of Monroe, was dead at the scene.

“Speed and alcohol are being investigated as possible contributing factors in the accident,” the spokesman said.

The other driver was also taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
