Teen drivers in fatal Stone Mountain crash out on bond

Saheed Saunders and Tomcum Siripanhya, both 17, were released Wednesday from the DeKalb County jail on $21,000 and $20,000 bond, respectively.

Both teens were accused of racing, reckless driving, and vehicular homicide in the wreck that killed 14-year-old Tanesha Williams.

Saunders also is charged with improper passing, when his car jumped the curb near Stone Mountain High School after students were dismissed, killing Williams and injuring two other students walking on the sidewalk, authorities said.

DeKalb County police spokesman Jason Gagnon said investigators are working with the DeKalb County District Attorney's office to investigate the case.
