ROME, Ga. (AP) - A police spokesman says a juvenile has been charged in the death of another Georgia teen after a game called “jump the car” turned deadly.

Jerome Poole, a spokesman for the Floyd County Police Department, tells the Rome News-Tribune (https://bit.ly/2dSiX93 ) that an unidentified juvenile was charged Thursday with felony vehicular homicide, reckless driving and violation of his provisional license.

Poole says a complete report will be available Friday morning.

Authorities have said they believe teenager Kobe Thomas was playing a game called “jump the car” when he was struck and fatally injured last Friday.

The game involves jumping over a car as it approaches.

Thomas died from his injuries Sunday.
