Police have charged a woman with vehicular homicide in the death of a taxi driver.
Police said Karl Green was killed when he lost control of his cab and hit a tree near the Riverdale exit ramp off Interstate 85.
College Park police now say they believe Green’s death was the result of road rage.
Police arrested Laronda Robinson on charges of vehicular homicide, reckless driving and aggressive driving.
According to officers, Robinson drove recklessly and repeatedly cut off Green while chasing him at speeds up to 70 mph.
Police said Robinson had gotten into an argument with Green at a Exxon gas station on Old National Highway.
Officers said surveillance cameras recorded the encounter, and the video was valuable in solving the case.
“Very valuable. It let us know right away when we looked at it that something may have been amiss in the story. (It) prompted us to do some more follow-up,” Deputy Chief Ferman Williford of the College Park Police Department said.
Police said Robinson told them that Green rear-ended her, but they now say she caused the original collision.
Green’s girlfriend burst into tears when she spoke to Channel 2’s Tom Jones. Watch Channel 2 Action News at 4 to see a full interview with her.
