Police: Faulty driver in death had no license

LAWRENCEVILLE — A Lawrenceville woman charged this week in an October crash that killed a teen and injured a young girl was driving without a license, according to jail records.

Wykelia Robinson, 28, was booked Monday on misdemeanor vehicular homicide and failure to yield charges, along with a host of traffic citations that include driving without a license and improper restraint of children.

Investigators believe the two-car crash happened Oct. 9 when Robinson ran a red light in her 2002 Ford Explorer at the intersection of Old Norcross and Cruse roads near Lawrenceville.

Robinson struck a 2001 Saab 93SE being driven eastbound on Old Norcross Road by Andrius Nikolaychuk, 18, who died at the scene.

A 7-year-old girl riding with Nikolaychuk was transported to Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta in critical condition. Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Edwin Ritter said Tuesday he believes the girl was the victim’s sister.

An update on the child’s condition was not available Tuesday.

Robinson was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville for treatment of injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Robinson’s two children were passengers in her vehicle. They were transported to Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening, police said at the time.

Robinson remained jailed Tuesday on $9,100 bond.
