The woman accused of causing two fatal multi-vehicle accidents in two years, including one during the Memorial Day weekend on Ga. 316 in Gwinnett County, was granted bond Tuesday afternoon.

Police say Townes was the at-fault driver in a seven-vehicle accident Sunday, May 25 that killed Pamela Leake of Lawrenceville and injured several others. The pile-up near the Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road bridge closed the freeway for hours.

Police said Townes was wanted in DeKalb County for vehicular homicide in a four-car wreck two years ago that killed Lymeng Lim. Lim was a U.S. Navy veteran, WSB-TV said.

Townes appeared in court for a bond hearing Tuesday afternoon. She was granted a bond of $125,000 for the DeKalb charge, and $25,000 for each of seven other charges for a total of $300,000, the TV station reported.

She needs to rot in jail. Liberals want to talk about gun control, but they forget more people are killed in cars by other people every year. There is no room for people like this driving on out streets. Rot.

ok, she killed before and again & bond? to me it does not matter what was used when someone is killed, they should have banned her from driving after the first one, but NO, send her back out so this woman for whatever reason she gives can not drive but she knows how to use her car as a weapon, I wonder if she still has access to cars and the roadway, to me that is a low bond for 2 deaths, my Prayers go out to the families of her victims
