COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A driver has been charged in a
that killed a young father and seriously injured a passenger. %
According to police, a 2009 Dodge Challenger was eastbound on Windy Hill Road at 100 mph around 1 a.m. Friday and hit a Chevrolet Monte Carlo, splitting it in half.
The driver of the Monte Carlo, 26-year-old Guadalupe Osnorio of Smyrna, died instantly.
Osnorio's family is making preparations to bury him. He leaves behind a 5-year-old son.
The driver of the Challenger, 31-year-old David Fuller of Locust Grove, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. His passenger, 22-year-old Dillion Gallion, suffered serious injuries and is being treated at Kennestone Hospital.
Fuller is charged with homicide by vehicle, serious injury by vehicle, reckless driving, and fleeing and attempting to elude.
Records show Fuller is wanted in three other counties and by the state for being an absconded sex offender, meaning he failed to report to authorities as required by his 2005 statutory rape conviction.
Cobb County police told Channel 2’s Ross Cavitt Wednesday that they were chasing Fuller moments before the tragic wreck.
They say it all started miles away when an officer heard shots fired on Milford Church Road. Seconds later, the officers spotted the orange Dodge on Windy Hill Road.
The arrest warrant says the officer hit his lights, and the Dodge hit the gas.
After the crash, police got a search warrant and found a gun in the wreckage of the Dodge.
