Gwinnett Daily Post
In an article published Oct. 22, information submitted by the Gwinnett County Police Department was erroneous.
Ted Bailey, chief forensic investigator with the Office of the Medical Examiner, said there were 68 vehicle deaths in Gwinnett County as of Oct. 21., not 62 as originally reported.
The article did not include three deaths investigated by Lawrenceville police, one death investigated by Duluth police and another death investigated by Snellville police. Also, a case was investigated by Gwinnett police that involved the death of Steven Curtis Dixon, 17, who was riding in the back of a pickup truck driven by his mother and fell out and struck his head, Bailey said.
The article incorrectly listed Cory Aaron Johnson as a fatality on Jan. 24. He was the driver of a car in which passenger Robert Lee Watson, 18, was killed. Also, the article incorrectly listed Thomas Carol Taylor as a fatality on March 22. He was the driver of a vehicle involved in the crash. Maxime Hecquet, 19, a passenger in the vehicle being driven by Sandra Banderas, was killed, Bailey said. Clarification
Two articles about the special-use permit requested for Dacula's Rancho Alegre have mentioned that property owner Pilar Quintero owns 36 acres on Givens Road. While the Quinteros do own 36 acres, they are in two tracts of unattached land. The special-use permit had been requested for a 19.9-acre tract, not the entire property.
