More than a year after a woman was charged with vehicular homicide in the crash on that killed her husband on Fulton Mill Road, another woman who also was involved in the wreck turned herself in at the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

Dawn Norton Williams is charged with vehicular homicide and driving under the influence of alcohol in the Oct. 7, 2016, crash that killed 39-year-old Daniel Karl Wilder.

The 52-year-old turned herself in at the sheriff’s office late afternoon Friday and was released on a $16,700 bond, Bibb County jail records show.

Williams was at the wheel of a Toyota Scion near Central State Prison in the 4600 block of Fulton Mill Road when a 1998 Chevrolet S-10 pickup, driven by Brenda Jeanette Wilder, veered into the Scion.

Daniel Wilder, a passenger in his wife’s pickup truck, died at the scene.

Authorities charged Brenda Wilder with vehicular homicide in May after learning of blood test results that apparently showed Wilder was on drugs at the time of the crash. Authorities also alleged she was driving 66 mph in a 45-mph zone that night.
