Tansu Kanlica, 27, of Atlanta was arrested Sunday, not long after police say he lost control of his car, and the vehicle struck the girls. Investigators believe Kanlica was chasing Garrett Anderson, 23, of Kennesaw, at the time of the collision.
According to arrest warrants, Kanlica was working as a locksmith when a customer drove away without paying him $175, prompting Kanlica to chase the other man’s vehicle.
After allegedly striking the three pedestrians, Kanlica, 27, of Atlanta, left the scene of the wreck, according to police. He was located several miles away at I-75 and Canton Road, where he was arrested.
Kanlica and Anderson were arrested on charges of homicide by vehicle in the first degree, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, and reckless driving. Kanlica also faces charges of hit and run resulting in serious injury and failure to maintain lane. Both men are being held without bond, according to Cob County jail records.
