Former GSP Trooper Indicted by Grand Jury in 2011 Accident that Killed a Loganville Woman

The former 10-year-veteran of the Georgia State Patrol is charged with vehicular homicide, reckless driving and violation of oath by a public officer.

WSBTV reports that Donald Crozier, the former Georgia State Patrol trooper involved in a 2011 , has been indicted by a Fulton County grand jury in connection with the case. He is reportedly charged with vehicular homicide, reckless driving and violation of oath by a public officer.

Crozier, a 10-year veteran of the GSP, was fired following the accident. Crozier's vehicle collided with a vehicle driven by Braves trainer Jeff Porter, sending the trooper, Porter, his then 19-old-old son and another passenger to the hospital and killing Porter’s wife, Kathy, 54. Crozier was rushing to join in a motorcycle chase at the time of the wreck. The Porter family was on the way to the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. Earlier reports were that the trooper entered the intersection against a red light but that his siren and lights were activated at the time.

At the time authorities said that an investigation by  the GSP Specialized Accident Reconstruction Team, the department's Special Investigations Team, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office would continue. He said the finding would be presented to DA Paul Howard on the conclusion of the investigation for any charges to be considered. He said the termination of Crozier would have no impact on the findings of the investigations.
