Girl in fatal wreck to be charged as juvenile

August 26, 2010

A 17-year-old girl will be charged as a juvenile and not as an adult in connection with a deadly car accident in Hamilton County. Francheska Smith faces a reckless homicide charge following a crash last month that killed 16-year-old Aaron Skaggs. Investigators said Smith was driving nearly 100 miles per hour when she lost control, hit a ditch and rolled over before coming to a stop in a field near Sheridan. Smith later tested positive for marijuana.
