Georgia woman indicted for allegedly causing crash on I-75 that injured 11-year-old


A Georgia woman has been indicted for vehicle assault after she allegedly was at fault for an Interstate 75 traffic crash that injured a child.

A Wood County grand jury on Wednesday indicted Lania Shana Treadwell, 25, Decatur, Georgia, for aggravated vehicular assault, a third-degree felony; two counts endangering children, one a fifth-degree felony and one a first-degree misdemeanor; possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, both minor misdemeanors; and two counts operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a drug or abuse or a combination of them/OVI, both first-degree misdemeanors.

On Sept. 30, Treadwell allegedly was at fault in a traffic crash on I-75 near Bowling Green that resulted in serious physical harm to an 11-year-old boy.

Treadwell is accused of being impaired at the time of the crash. According to court documents, she had a blood alcohol content between 0.08 and 0.17.

There were four children under the age of 12 in the vehicle. An 11-year-old sustained a head injury, causing him to drift in and out of consciousness.

Treadwell was taken to jail and released on an own recognizant bond.
