A Gainesville man has been charged with felony murder in connection with his alleged role in a car crash that left a woman and toddler dead.

Christoper Eggersdorf was charged Monday by a Hall County grand jury with two counts of felony murder, criminal damage to property in the first degree, aggravated assault, two counts of homicide by vehicle in the first degree, serious injury by vehicle, reckless driving, no insurance and no headlights.

On Sept. 30, the then-16-year-old driver’s Mustang and another car collided, killing Lora Thompson, 50, and Anna Grace Jones, 3.

Eggersdorf was driving west on Ransom Free Road attempting to cross Ga. 283, and Thompson was traveling south.

The teen had a stop sign when the car struck the left side of Thompson’s Pontiac, Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Franka Young said in February.
