Forsyth teen charged with homicide in car crash

Teen voluntarily surrendered to jail



FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A three-car collision on Spot Road July 14 left one teenager dead and another charged with vehicular homicide.

A 17-year-old Lambert High School student voluntarily surrendered herself to the Forsyth County Jail July 23 after warrants were obtained for her arrest for homicide by vehicle second degree, failure to yield turning left and driving in violation of license restrictions.

Around 4:30 p.m. July 14, the Suwanee teen was driving a 2010 Mercedes SUV at the entrance of Sawnee Mountain Visitor’s Center near the intersection of Spot Road and Twin Lakes Drive.

Her car collided with a white 2005 Honda Accord driven by MacKean Robertson, 18 of Cumming. The Accord slid sideways into the path of a westbound green Nissan Pathfinder, driven by Michael Norwood, 22, of Dahlonega.

Robertson, a recent Forsyth Central High School graduate, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 17-year-old passenger in the SUV was not injured, nor was the teen driver.

The Pathfinder also had a front seat passenger, James Lewis, 37 of Cumming. The occupants of the Pathfinder were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The cause of the crash is currently under investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Specialist Unit.
