Cobb County police have charged a Marietta man with vehicular homicide in connection to a crash that killed his pregnant wife.
Antwan Hal Senior, 30, is charged with homicide by vehicle in the first degree, feticide by vehicle in the first degree, driving without a license, failure to maintain lane and DUI less safe in the April 9 collision on Austell Road at Kurt Drive in Marietta.
According to an arrest warrant, Senior was driving a red 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche southbound on Austell Road at Kurt Drive around 3 p.m. when he veered off the roadway and struck a curb. He over-corrected, and the Chevrolet began to spin in a counter clockwise direction. The truck crashed into the center median, rolled over and came to a rest upright in the northbound lane.
His wife and passenger, 29-year-old Jessica Ashley Senior of Marietta, was ejected from the Chevrolet. She was transported to an area hospital and died April 16 of her injuries, according to the warrant. The unborn child Jessica Senior was carrying at the time of the crash died April 14.
According to the warrant, Antwan Senior allegedly told police conducting a DUI investigation that he consumed two beers and a shot of liquor. Senior submitted to two alcohol breathalyzer tests at the scene, which returned readings of .158 and .138, respectively, the warrant alleges. The state’s legal limit is .08.
Senior was originally booked into the Cobb County Jail April 9 on charges of DUI, serious injury by vehicle, driving without a license and failure to maintain lane, but the two homicide by vehicle charges were added upon the passing of his wife and the baby. He remains held without bond.
