Mercer County woman texting while driving caused a traffic crash that killed a Lawrence County motorcyclist earlier this month, police said

Hickory police charged Laura E. Gargiulo, 42, with homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault by vehicle, causing an accident involving injury, and summary offenses of reckless and careless driving and texting while driving.

Gargiulo was driving an SUV that hit and killed Daniel Gallatin, 68, of Scott, on Route 956 in Hickory on May 7. Scott was a former chief of the Scott, Lawrence County, volunteer fire department.

Online court records showed that Gargiulo was placed in the Lawrence County Jail Friday evening after failing to post $50,000 cash bond set by District Judge Scott McGrath.
