Driver to be charged in wreck that killed Dawson County teen

By Brian Stewart Reporter

The driver of a Ford Mustang involved in a fatal wreck with a Hall County School bus on Wednesday will be charged in the investigation, the Georgia State Patrol confirmed Thursday.

Lonnie Anderson, 33, reportedly hydroplaned on Thompson Bridge Road near Rufus Bryant Road, hitting the school bus head-on, and killing a passenger in his vehicle, Summer Anderson, 13, and seriously injuring another, Zachary Anderson, 12, said Sgt. Auston Allen in an email to AccessWDUN.

Lonnie Anderson will be charged "upon the improvement of his medical condition" with failure to maintain lane and slick tires. He may also be charged with second-degree vehicular homicide, but that decision will be made by the State Court Solicitor of Hall County.

Lonnie and Zachary Anderson suffered serious injuries in the wreck, which happened around 7:10 a.m.

No students on the bus, which was bound for Mt. Vernon Elementary, were hurt, though all were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center for a precautionary evaluation.

Summer Anderson was a student in the Dawson County School System, Superintendent Damon Gibbs confirmed.
