Kidistz Temesgen, 39, of 3035 Pasadena Drive, has been charged by the Georgia State Patrol with DUI, homicide by vehicle in the first degree, serious injury by vehicle, felony fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, duty to stop at an accident, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, failure to drive on the right-hand side of the road and following too closely.

The Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office first came into contact with Temesgen’s vehicle just before 10 p.m. Thursday when dispatch reported that a hit and run had occurred a few minutes earlier at the Texaco gas station located at 2291 Sigman Road.

One of the victims in the hit and run told deputies that a woman driving a silver Hyundai SUV appeared to be intoxicated had hit two vehicles in the parking lot and then left.

A deputy who was heading into the Sheriff’s Office to begin his shift saw a vehicle traveling toward Ga. Highway 138 on Sigman Road on the wrong side of the road, headed directly for the deputy’s patrol vehicle.

“Once he realized the vehicle was not going to swerve over, he had to run into a ditch to avoid colliding with it,” said RCSO Cpl. Michael Camp. ….MORE
