HALL COUNTY, Ga. – Police said a high school student was killed in a street racing crash in Hall County.

The crash happened Monday just before midnight on Millside Parkway at Mundy Mill Road.

Police said Brandon Eduardo Sanchez, 19, and Kevin A. Padilla Alvarez, 17, were racing when Sanchez lost control of his vehicle and hit a tree. 

Sanchez’s passenger, Jesus Martinez, 17, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. 



Jesus Martinez, 17, was killed when the driver of the car he was a passenger in hit a tree.



“This just goes to show you how dangerous it is when you speed along with careless driving,” Gainseville police Cpl. Drew Reed said.

Authorities said Sanchez only had a learner’s permit and should not have had any passengers. 

Both drivers are facing vehicular homicide charges.

Teachers at West Hal High School told Channel 2’s Matt Johnson that Martinez was a popular student-athlete who loved being on the wrestling team. 

Neighbors said they have been concerned about speeding in the area and they are more concerned about the children at the new Mundy Mill Elementary School.

“I walk early in the morning and I walk around here and there are cars that are speeding, but it’s not always teenagers,” Arlene Alcott said.



Police said two vehicles were racing on Millside Parkway in Hall County.

The school superintendent sent Johnson two letters he sent to GDOT in September asking for a traffic light near Millside Parkway at Highway 53, which is a quarter of a mile from where Martinez died. 

GDOT has not said if traffic lights will be coming to the area.
