Authorities have identified the driver in a Tuesday fatal accident on Richmond Hill Road.

Nathaniel Thomas, 26, of the 1700 block of Essie McIntyre Boulevard, was driving the blue Chevrolet Impala when he lost control and hit a tree at about 4 p.m., according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Lt. Scott Gay. A passenger in the car, Terrill Mason, 25, of the 2000 block of Dallas Drive, died in the accident.

Charges of homicide by motor vehicle are pending against Mr. Thomas, who is at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital undergoing treatment for his injuries, Lt. Gay said.

The vehicle in which the two were riding was involved in a carjacking about 1:30 that morning.

Sheriff’s investigators say they are still looking into whether the two crash victims had any connection to the carjacking.

Hey, the only problem is that

Hey, the only problem is that it didn't kill both of the thugs in either one of these incidents. Now we've got hospital bills, trials, lawyers fees, incarceration (if we can find a judge that will actually lock somebody up). The poor taxpayer just can't catch a break.

Sorry thugs - just want to steal somebody else's property instead of working to pay for their own. Justice, sweet justice!

Why not let them die. Who

Why not let them die. Who needs them anyway. Certainly not decent society. If they do live then go for the death penalty.
