A Georgia state trooper who was fired after a crash that killed two teenage girls won't face criminal charges.

Last September, two students of South Paulding High School were killed by Ex-Georgia State Patrol Trooper Anthony James Scott.

On Wednesday, the Office of Carroll County District Attorney Pete Skandalakis dismissed an intended criminal charge against Anthony James Scott.

Hell was let loose with criticisms from concerned relatives and the public at large following the announcement that Scott will not face the intended criminal charge.

The ghastly accident that happened on Sep. 26, led to the death of Kylie Hope Lindsey, 17, and Isabella Alise Chinchilla, 16, with two other male teenagers Dillon Lewis Wall, 18, and Benjamin Alan Finken, 17, hospitalized with injuries, said GSP spokesman Capt. Mark Perry.

It was not obvious why Pete Skandalakis declined to make the trooper face criminal charges owing to the fact that he was reported to be driving at 91mph just before the crash.

According to reports, Scott sideswiped the teens’ car near Bremen in Carroll County about 11:35 p.m. while traveling north on U.S. 27 in a 2014 Dodge Charger patrol car.

Scott was fired in October. A month later, he won election to a city council seat in Buchanan.

Concerned residents have said that there is need to have a review of the verdict and appropriate investigation to be conducted in that regard which might reveal more details.
