MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Police say an Louisiana man has been charged in the death of an Alabama Department of Transportation employee.
A Montgomery police Facebook post says the driver, 46-year-old James Overstreet, was charged with murder in a motor vehicle crash resulting in the death of 62-year-old Leo Fournier.
Police charged Overstreet after test results confirmed he was under the influence of an illegal substance at the time of the crash.
Montgomery police and fire medics responded to the 4000 block of Atlanta Highway after three members of an ALDOT survey crew were struck on Oct. 31.
