Georgia college freshman dies in crash returning from spring break

A college freshman from Gwinnett County was killed Saturday morning as he returned from a spring break trip to the beach, his family said. 

Charles Jaylin Boykins, 19, was a 2017 graduate of Brookwood High School and a freshman at the University of North Georgia. He planned to become an orthopedic surgeon, his aunt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

After spending several days in Panama City Beach, Boykins was a passenger in a 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer that left the roadway around 8:56 a.m. Saturday on U.S. 431 near Phenix City, Ala. He died from injuries.
