Man jailed in traffic accident that killed Houston County woman

Bibb County deputies have arrested a 19-year-old Warner Robins man in connection with an April traffic accident that killed a 19-year-old Bonaire woman.

Edgar Zaldua turned himself in to authorities Thursday, John Regan, an assistant Bibb County district attorney, said at a news conference this afternoon.

After months of investigation, deputies determined Zaldua was behind the wheel of a 1991 Honda Accord when it crashed at about 4:40 a.m. April 27 on Interstate 475, said Bibb County Sheriff Jerry Modena.

Initially Zaldua told deputies that Kelly Hill, 19, of Bonaire had been driving, Modena said. Hill died at the scene. Zaldua is charged with vehicular homicide and is being held at the Bibb County Jail without bond.
