An Ellijay man was arrested Aug. 24 on a misdemeanor charge of second degree homicide by vehicle after a January motor vehicle wreck left one dead.

According to Dawson County Sheriff Jeff Johnson, Riblet was involved in a wreck at the intersection of Hwy. 182 and Hwy. 136 on Jan. 11, 2018.

He was cited for failure to yield, and accused of turning left into the path of an oncoming vehicle operated by Mark Douglas Allison of Murphy, N.C.

Allison died on Jan. 18, and follow-up investigations were conducted to determine whether or not the injuries he sustained in the wreck were related to his death, Johnson said.

A warrant was issued for Riblet’s arrest on Aug. 17, and he is accused of causing Allison’s death by failing to yield.

Johnson said Riblet has since been released after posting a $10,000 bond.
