Investigators with the Cherokee Sheriff’s Office Traffic Enforcement Unit arrested a Canton woman Tuesday afternoon in connection with a fatal accident on I-575 near Ball Ground last Friday. Carolyn Rampley, 60 years old, was arrested and charged with Vehicular Homicide in the First Degree, Reckless Driving, Aggressive Driving, and Hit and Run.
Working off a tip from a citizen, investigators were able to make contact with Rampley at her home. It was determined Rampley was traveling on I-575 last Friday afternoon. Investigators believe that Rampley was involved a road rage incident with Ashley Faucet, 25, of Jasper, and ultimately caused Faucet to lose control of her vehicle resulting in an accident which caused her death.
Rampley is currently being held in the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center without bond.
