A Powder Springs man has been charged in a crash that killed a Douglasville woman last Monday, according to police.
David Exume, the driver of a Chevrolet Camaro that struck a Chrysler PT Cruiser last Monday, has been charged with felony vehicular homicide in the first degree, misdemeanor operating an unsafe vehicle and misdemeanor reckless driving, police said. The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office took Exume into custody Thursday night.
According to Cobb Police, Ellen J. Shoulders, 54, was driving the silver PT Cruiser out of a driveway and into Powder Springs Road when she crashed into an oncoming black Chevrolet Camaro. Shoulders turned left out of a day care driveway to travel west on Powder Springs Road and drove into the path of the eastbound Camaro, investigators said. The front of the Camaro crashed into the driver side of the PT Cruiser.
Shoulders was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital. She was later pronounced dead. A 3-year old girl was also in the PT Cruiser with Shoulders and was brought to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite with non-life-threatening injuries.
