Motorcyclist killed in Sandy Springs crash; driver charged

A woman is facing charges after a Sandy Springs crash that killed a motorcyclist, police said.

Charity Adams, 29, was driving a Jeep Wrangler that collided Saturday about 7 p.m. with a motorcycle driven by Benjamin Rowan, 29, of Sandy Springs, police Sgt. Sam Worsham said.

The crash was on Roswell Road near Dunwoody Place, according to Worsham.

“A Jeep Wrangler exited a shopping center and turned into the path of an approaching motorcycle,” Worsham said. “The vehicles collided and the Jeep overturned.

“The driver of the motorcycle did not survive the crash and was pronounced dead.”

Adams, of Sandy Springs, was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide and making an improper left turn, Worsham said. Both charges are misdemeanors.
