Georgia driver charged in passenger’s death

MACON, Georgia (AP) – A Georgia man has been charged with vehicular homicide in a car crash that killed his passenger.

News outlets report 20-year-old Matthew Travis Hulette was charged Thursday in the June 4 crash that killed 17-year-old Dawson Swain.

A Georgia State Patrol report says Hulette told officers he swerved into an oncoming lane to avoid a cat, then swerved again to avoid an oncoming vehicle before running off road and hitting a sign and tree.

Authorities say Hulette was reportedly speeding toward oncoming cars on a Macon bridge. Hulette posted bail on Friday and was released from custody.
