The Covington News - - Crime - By Am­ber Pittman

The driver au­thor­i­ties say is re­spon­si­ble for the wreck that killed an Ox­ford man last week has been charged with homi­cide by ve­hi­cle.

Don­ald Paul Kahle, 69, was charged on Nov. 12 with sec­ond de­gree ve­hic­u­lar homi­cide and fail­ure to yield. He is ac­cused of caus­ing the ac­ci­dent that killed 39-year-old Ter­rance Michael Collins of Ox­ford.

Ac­cord­ing to Ge­or­gia State Pa­trol Spokesman Gordy Wright, Kahle was driv­ing a 2005 Dodge pickup truck west­bound on Stone Road and at­tempted to make a left turn into the re­cy­cling cen­ter when the truck was hit in the rear quar­ter-panel by Collins’ Har­ley Davidson, which was trav­el­ing east. Kahle was un­in­jured, but Collins was thrown from his mo­tor­cy­cle, ac­cord­ing to Wright.

Kahle was booked into the Newton County De­ten­tion Cen­ter and bonded out the same day on a $3,500 prop­erty bond.
