Girl, 16, to face charges in fatal crash

A teenage driver whose Monday morning wreck claimed the life of a fellow Sandy Creek High School student will face several criminal charges, according to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office.
Delsia Radlein, 16, of Fayetteville, has been charged with vehicular homicide (second degree), driving too fast for conditions, failure to maintain lane, violation of Class D license restrictions and a safety belt violation.
The crash claimed the life of Angel Anthony, 16, also a student at Sandy Creek. Anthony was in the back seat of the 1994 Toyota Corolla driven by Radlein when the car ran off Old Ford Road and struck a stone mailbox shortly after 8 a.m., deputies said.
Anthony, who was not wearing a seatbelt, struck the rear window during the crash which caused her severe injuries, deputies said. She was pronounced dead at Southern Regional Medical Center hours after the crash, deputies said.
Radlein and another passenger in the car, Cameron Bush, also 16 and a Sandy Creek student, were both wearing their seatbelts and received minor injuries in the crash, deputies said.
Under Georgia law, Radlein was not supposed to be driving anyone else in her vehicle unless the passengers were relatives of her immediate family.
Radlein lost control of the vehicle as it approached a curve in the road, causing it to leave the pavement and strike the stone mailbox, deputies said.
The vehicular homicide charge is a misdemeanor.
