Woman charged in early morning fatal car crash

Posted: Updated:

Cobb County police have arrested Diana Stepp, 47, of Satellite Beach, Florida, after an early morning fatal crash.

The crash happened Saturday on I-75 south, just south of the Hickory Grove Road overpass.

Police said Stepp failed to maintain her lane and sideswiped a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado truck, driven by James McNeece, 47, of Ringgold.

Stepp's driving caused McNeece's truck to veer off of the road and overturn, Cobb police said.

McNeece was transported by air ambulance to Grady Memorial hospital in critical condition.

McNeece's wife, Reba McNeece, 45, died at the scene.

Investigators said Stepp was arrested at the scene and taken to the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.

Stepp was charged with second degree vehicular homicide and failure to maintain lane.
