The investigation into the traffic fatality of Dale County High School Head Football Coach Todd Horne is nearly complete and will be presented to the Dale County Grand Jury in September according to District Attorney Kirke Adams.
The investigation is being conducted by the Ozark Police Department and assisted by the Alabama State Troopers.
The preliminary investigation concluded that a 16 year old juvenile failed to yield the right of way to Horne’s vehicle.
The Grand Jury will meet in September to determine the culpability of the defendant’s criminal conduct.
Adams expects to call several witnesses to testify, including the other four coaches in Horne’s vehicle.
