Alcohol was believed to have been a factor in a Tuesday night wreck that killed a teenage driver, DeKalb County police said.
DeKalb police Lt. Pam Kunz said the single-vehicle crash happened about 10:30 p.m. on Osborne Road at Haven brook Lane.
She said a vehicle driven by Tomas Chipman, 18, of Atlanta ran off the road and struck a utility pole.
Chipman died of his injuries, Kunz said. A male passenger was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition, she said.
“Detectives do believe that alcohol was a contributing factor,” Kunz said in an e-mail to the AJC.
