TROY, Ala. (AP) - Police say a Troy truck driver could face criminal charges for allegedly causing last month's fiery crash on Highway 231 that killed a Florida truck driver.
Authorities said preliminary evidence indicated 26-year-old Dusty Lee Scott Conner failed to yield the right of way in the December 19th wreck in Troy.
56-year-old Deborah Ann Fields of DeFuniak Springs died when the 18-wheeler she was driving exploded into flames after crashing into the rear of Conner's log truck.
Troy Police spokesman, Sgt. Benny Scarbrough, said a grand jury could determine whether Conner would be charged.
