According to a police report, Aboagye was wearing a seat belt and was the sole occupant of the car.
At the time of the incident a Gwinnett Police Department spokesman said there was no indication alcohol or drugs were contributing factors in the crash.
Marshall had not been arrested as of Friday, according to jail records.
