80-year-old Marietta woman charged with vehicular homicide


An elderly Powder Springs man was killed and an elderly Marietta woman was arrested Saturday on charges related to the November wreck that took his life. 

Police say Carolyn Nyman, 80, faces two charges: a felony for second-degree vehicular homicide and a misdemeanor for failure to yield when entering or crossing a roadway.

While exiting a private property in Powder Springs, Nyman allegedly failed to yield the right of way to Michael Clark, 64. While turning from the property onto Austell Powder Springs Road, Nyman’s 2019 Honda Civic collided with Clark’s 1992 Chevrolet Silverado, police said. Clark was taken to Wellstar Cobb Hospital but succumbed to his injuries. 

After posting a $7,500 bond, Nyman was released from Cobb County jail the same day of her arrest.
