A woman has been arrested after she drove up over the curb and fatally struck a pedestrian during a crash in November.

The crash happened around 8 a.m. on November 22 on Akers Mill Road near Cobb Parkway in Marietta.

Police say a vehicle being driven by 30 year-old Toni Hale ran off the road and hit 50 year-old Joseph Poncer. Her car continued on and hit two light poles before coming to a stop.

Police are blaming distracted driving as a cause.

Hale is facing charges of homicide by vehicle-first degree, reckless driving and failure to maintain a lane.
