James Stan­ley Moore Sr. was head­ing to work at SRG Global around 4:20 a.m. on April 24 when an­other ve­hi­cle crossed into his lane, end­ing the 59-year-old’s life. On July 4, 23-year-old Wil­liam An­drew Spain was charged in the ac­ci­dent that caused Moore’s death.

Ac­cord­ing to the Ge­or­gia State Patrol, Spain was trav­el­ing north on Ga. High­way 162 when he crossed the cen­ter line and struck Moore’s Ford F-150 headon. Moore was killed and Spain was air­lifted to At­lanta Med­i­cal Cen­ter to re­ceive treat­ment for his own in­juries.

GSP said that drugs and al­co­hol were not a fac­tor in the ac­ci­dent, but the Spe­cial­ized Crash Re­con­struc­tion Team was un­able to find that dis­trac­tion was a cause for the ac­ci­dent, ei­ther.

Spain has been charged with fail­ure to main­tain lane and sec­ond-de­gree ve­hic­u­lar homi­cide. Spain turned him­self into the New­ton County Jail on July 4. He re­ceived a bond of $11,250 and bonded out on July 5.
