Charges have been filed in connection with a deadly wreck Friday morning on Highway 27 North at Cordle Drive.

According to Floyd County Jail records, 18-year old Ainsley Brianna Sutton of Armuchee is charged with 2nd-degree homicide by vehicle, failure to maintain a lane, and following too closely (all misdemeanors).

The arrest reports state that Sutton was following an SUV too closely.

When the SUV slowed to turn right, Sutton left her lane of travel, forcing a vehicle driven by 19-year old Alexis Brook Howell into oncoming traffic.

Howell’s vehicle was struck on the passenger side and she died at the scene.
