The passenger in the car with a driver killed in a North Hall wreck Friday morning was charged with leaving the scene of the accident, according to authorities.

Alexander Christopher Chalmers, 40, was charged with reckless conduct, misdemeanor obstruction of an officer and failing to stop and render aid, according to Georgia State Patrol.

Chalmers was riding with Randolph Taylor Evans, 70, of Commerce, who died following a two-car wreck Friday morning near the intersections of Shirley and Mount Vernon Roads.

Harper previously told The Times that Evans is believed to have pulled into the path of another vehicle around 8 a.m. Friday on Mount Vernon Road.

“The suspect was arrested as a result of leaving the scene of an accident where a fatality occurred and failing to render aid to the injured driver,” GSP Sgt. G.R. Harper wrote in an email.

The other driver was not injured, according to GSP.

Harper said there was “no reason noted for why (Chalmers) left.”
