Oyin Jones Mitchell, 39, was charged with failure to yield while turning left, child safety restraint violations and second-degree vehicular homicide — all of which are misdemeanors — after she was arrested Monday at the county jail’s visitation center, sheriff’s records show.
Police say Mitchell was attempting to turn left from Richard D. Sailors Parkway onto New Macland Road when she struck a motorcyclist with the right side of her gray 2012 GMC Acadia.
Anthony B. Gaiter, 42, was driving a black 2010 Harley-Davidson toward the intersection on a green light when the collision took place, according to police.
Police say Gaiter was transported via ambulance to Kennestone Hospital, where he received treatment for his injuries. He died later that evening.
Police say Mitchell and her passenger, an unidentified child police say was younger than six years old, did not require any medical attention.
After posting a $50,000 bond, she was released from the county jail Tuesday, sheriff’s records show.
