Norcross-area resident Shirley Jones, 86, died as a result of a two-vehicle crash accident Sunday in Lilburn.

From the traffic fatality, Grayson resident James Earl White was charged Monday with vehicular homicide and failure to obey a stop sign.

According to the report from Gwinnett County Police, White, 73, was driving a 2005 Lincoln Navigator when he stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Louis and Killian Hill roads in Lilburn. Jones, driving a 1992 Geo Prizm, was traveling north on Killian Hill Road when White pulled out in front of her, causing a collision.

White and his passenger were taken to Gwinnett Medical Center with minor injuries. Jones was transported to Emory Eastside Medical Center where she died as a result of her injuries.

It is reported that neither alcohol nor speed were considered a factor in this accident. White turned himself into the Gwinnett County Detention Center at 10:49 a.m. Monday and was released immediately on $5,900 bond.
