Tragic Gwinnett County Crash Leaves 3 Dead, Including 5-Year-Old, as Father Faces Murder Charges

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. – A father from Gwinnett County, Georgia, is now facing serious charges including murder and vehicular homicide following a tragic crash that resulted in the death of three individuals, one of whom was his 5-year-old daughter.

According to authorities, Aaron Vaughn, 30, was allegedly driving his Chevrolet Camaro at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour when it collided with a BMW on Elmside Village Lane earlier this month. The posted speed limit in the area is 45 miles per hour, indicating a significant violation of the law.

The occupants of the BMW, identified as 46-year-olds Armas Harding and Laura Rueda, unfortunately did not survive the impact of the crash. Vaughn’s two daughters, ages 5 and 6, were also in the vehicle at the time of the incident. While both girls were reportedly wearing seat belts, they were not properly secured in child safety seats as required by law.

Tragically, the 5-year-old daughter, Aura Camarono, succumbed to her injuries and passed away at the hospital. The 6-year-old sibling survived but sustained injuries and is currently receiving medical treatment for her condition.

Aaron Vaughn has been charged with a range of serious offenses, including murder, multiple counts of homicide by vehicle, failure to provide proper child restraints in the vehicle, and reckless driving. He was apprehended and taken into custody at the Gwinnett County Jail.

Aura’s family has expressed their profound grief over the loss, describing her as a beloved, playful child whose life was tragically cut short. They have set up a fundraising page to help cover expenses and honor her memory.

The incident serves as a tragic reminder of the importance of following traffic laws and ensuring the safety of all passengers, especially young children, while traveling on the road. Authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash to determine the full extent of responsibility and consequences for those involved.
