A Gainesville man accused of crashing into a Lula councilwoman’s car and causing her death was indicted last week.

Joshua Wiley Armour, 23, is accused of crashing his Honda Accord into 57-year-old Lula councilwoman Vicky Chambers’ Toyota Sienna on Jan. 10.

He has been charged with first-degree vehicular homicide, serious injury by vehicle, misdemeanor driving under the influence, reckless driving, no insurance, failure to maintain lane, driving on the wrong side of the road, open container and seat belt violation.

On Jan. 10, authorities believe Armour was “cresting a hill driving on the wrong side of the road while it was dark” on Joe Chandler Road, according to the indictment. Georgia State Patrol said the Accord driven by Armour crossed over the center line and struck Chambers’ car head-on. An open alcoholic beverage was allegedly found in the passenger area, according to the indictment.

Chambers suffered critical injuries and was immediately transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center. She died Jan. 22.

Chambers’ passenger Lisa Page, of Gainesville is listed as a witness during the grand jury proceedings for Armour. Page and Chambers were out to eat in Rabbittown when the crash occurred.

Page also received injuries and was transferred to the Gainesville hospital.

The indictment alleges the crash caused serious injury to Page by rendering her fingers useless.

GSP said the toxicology report was not available at this time.

Court records indicated Armour has applied for indigent defense.
