The woman accused of causing a fatal seven-car accident in Gwinnett over the Memorial Day weekend appeared in a DeKalb County courtroom Tuesday for her alleged role in another fatal accident from 2012.

Lawrenceville Police have taken out warrants for Sabrina Townes charging her with first-degree homicide, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license in the holiday weekend crash, according to WSB-TV. The charges stem from Sunday's death of Pamela Leake, of Lawrenceville.

Townes already faces vehicular homicide in DeKalb County for her involvement in a 2012 accident that killed Lymeng Lim.

Police said Townes was the at-fault driver in a May 25 pile-up on Ga. 316 near the Lawrenceville-Suwanee bridge. Leake was killed and three others were injured in the accident, which closed the freeway for hours Sunday.

In the DeKalb case, DeKalb Police said they weren’t able to find Townes until the Gwinnett County wreck.

Townes’ bond was set at $300,000 in a DeKalb court on Tuesday.

Leake family members told the TV station they plan to be at every hearing for Townes.

A preliminary hearing in DeKalb is scheduled for June 16.

Yeah. Law enforcement doing its job again. This bunch of donut eaters is too busy hassling citizens, directing traffic for pay, and scamming us all to apprehend the most violent and worst offenders. Meanwhile get a ticket for jaywalking and you do hard time. Nazi thugs.
