Four teenagers were inside of the Nissan. Two of the teens, Isabella Chinchilla,16, and Kylie Lindsey, 17, died from injuries sustained in the crash. The other two teens were injured and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

An investigation by the Georgia Department of Public Safety says evidence indicated that five seconds prior to the crash, Scott's patrol car was traveling approximately 90 mph in a posted 55 mph speed zone.

Further evidence indicated that at the time of the crash, Scott was traveling approximately 66 mph.

According to officials with the Georgia Department of Public Safety, Scott was operating his vehicle without emergency equipment activated and was not responding to an emergency situation.

Based on the information gathered during the investigation, the Georgia Department of Public Safety terminated the employment of Scott.

Scott has now been charged with two counts of second-degree vehicular homicide, two counts of serious injury by vehicle, violation of oath of office, speeding and reckless driving.
