A Dawson County man died early Thursday morning in a single-vehicle wreck in North Hall County.


William "Brett" Myers, 27, was killed when the driver of a Dodge Magnum crashed into a tree and a parked car, according to the Georgia State Patrol.


Kaela Allison, 22 of Dahlonega, fled on foot from the scene of the 2:20 a.m. crash on U.S. 129 near Honeysuckle Road, Georgia State Patrol officials said.


She was tracked by Hall County Sheriff's tracking dogs to a church on Nopone Road.


Allison was charged with driving under the influence, failure to maintain lane, leaving the scene of an accident and first-degree vehicular homicide.


According to the Georgia State Patrol, Allison was driving northbound on U.S. 129 when she left the road, went across a residential driveway and a yard, struck a tree and then struck a parked car.


Allison was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center for treatment of noncritical injuries, then to the Hall County Jail, where she remains.
