COVINGTON -- The Georgia State Patrol has charged the driver of of a Ford Ranger involved in a head-on collision which resulted in the death of a Covington man with homicide by motor vehicle in the second degree and improper lane usage.
William Andrew Spain, 23, of 70 Aiken Way, turned himself in to the Newton County Detention Center on July 4 to face charges in connection with the April 24 crash.
This crash occurred on Ga. Highway 162 at County Line Road around 4:20 a.m. Fifty-nine-year-old James Stanley Moore of Covington was killed.
The GSP said their investigation has shown that Spain was traveling north when his Ford Ranger crossed the center line and struck the Ford F-150 Moore was driving head on.
Early on the GSP stated that alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the crash, and the subsequent investigation by the Specialized Crash Reconstruction Team did not reveal evidence that distraction was the cause, according to a GSP spokesman.
