An Auburn man was booked Dec. 11 on second-degree vehicular homicide from a fatal September wreck in Braselton.

Braselton Police investigated a wreck Sept. 4 on Spout Springs Road and Friendship Road. Officers found EMTs working on Ethan Christopher Barrett, 38, who was on the ground near a green Yamaha motorcycle.

Another man nearby, Kevin Hanson, said he was traveling northbound on Friendship Road and was trying to turn left on Spout Springs Road.

“He stated that he noticed another vehicle traveling towards him but waited for that vehicle to turn right on Spout Springs. He stated after that vehicle turned, he proceeded through the intersection and was struck in the passenger side by a green in color motorcycle being driven by (Barrett),” according to the Braselton Police report.

Hanson said he did not see the motorcycle.

Barrett died Sept. 5, according to an online obituary.

Braselton Police did not know why Hanson was arrested months after the incident.

Hanson is being held on a $8,030 bond.

No attorney information was available for Hanson Thursday, Dec. 13, with Magistrate Court.
