Man Receives Probation in 2011 Fatal Wreck

A Toccoa man receives probation after pleading no contest to a charge in connection to a fatal wreck in 2011.

Reed Lawrence LeCroy of Toccoa pleaded no contest to one charge of misdemeanor vehicular homicide in the second degree last week in Stephens County State Court.

He received 12 months probation.

LeCroy, who was 17 at the time,  was the driver of one of the vehicles involved in a wreck at the intersection of Highway 17 and Wolf Pit Road in October 2011.

84-year-old Clarence Robert Williams of Martin was killed in the wreck.

The Georgia State Patrol said in the initial accident report that LeCroy’s vehicle struck the rear of Williams’ vehicle, as Williams was turning left off of Highway 17 North onto Wolf Pit Road.

Troopers then stated that Williams’ vehicle then went into the southbound lane, where a third vehicle struck it.

Two people in that third vehicle were also injured.

Court officials state that under the terms of the probation, LeCroy loses his drivers’ license for the 12 months he is on probation and must also submit to random drug testing.

LeCroy’s sentence also includes 120 hours of community service and a $500 fine plus court costs.
