Police: Driver in chase kills girl on GA sidewalk

Posted: Updated:

KENNESAW, GA (AP) - A locksmith who police say was chasing a 23-year-old who drove away before paying for a lockout service lost control of his car and hit three teenage girls on a sidewalk in northern Georgia, killing one and injuring the other two.

Both men have been arrested.

Cobb County police spokesman Mike Bowman says the locksmith, 27-year-old Tansu Kanlica, of Atlanta, is facing several charges including vehicular homicide and reckless driving. Bowman says he was chasing 23-year-old Garrett Anderson in Kennesaw Sunday night.

Bowman says one girl was pronounced dead at the scene and a second suffered life-threatening injuries. The third girl is hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

Anderson, of Kennesaw, faces similar charges as Kanlica and is also charged with theft of services.

It's unclear if the men have attorneys.
