Green faces four total charges including Second Degree vehicular homicide, following too closely, failure to maintain lane, and texting while driving.

The original charges filed at the time of the accident did not include the texting charge.

The count of vehicular homicide alleges that Green unlawfully (but without an intention to do so) caused the death of Cammon when he was following another vehicle too closely causing  him to cross the center line and hit Cammon’s patrol car head-on.

The district attorney in the case is Peter Skandalakis of the Coweta Judicial Circuit.
