MOULTRY, Ga. — Two men were arrested this week on vehicular homicide charges related to separate accidents.
Litavious Devonte Greene, 30, of Moultrie, was arrested on Saturday 10 December in connection with an incident on 26 April 2021 involving two pedestrians.
The Georgia State Patrol report said Green was intoxicated when he moved a Dodge from one side of the house to the other on Southeast 10th Street. He told GSP, “The brakes failed, [he] The car couldn’t stop. “
Green’s mother, Cynthia Williams, 49, and another woman were shot. Another woman’s name was redacted from the GSP report, but the officer’s account identified her as the Brothers Grimm’s girlfriend and said she was pregnant at the time of the accident.
Williams was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the indictment in Colquitt County Superior Court.
The cause of her death was determined to be multiple blunt force trauma, Colquitt County Coroner Verlyn Brock said by phone Wednesday afternoon.
Another pedestrian was helicoptered to Tallahassee Memorial Medical Center following the crash, GSP reported.
Green was charged with the following counts: first-degree motorist homicide, DUI, expired sticker, operating a vehicle without insurance and reckless driving.
The indictment is the decision of a Colquitt County grand jury that the prosecution has enough evidence to move the case to Superior Court.
In the second arrest, Manjo Kumar Patel, 26, of Columbus, is charged with being the driver in a fatal two-vehicle crash on Aug. 22 of this year.
Moultrie Police Department officers responded to an incident involving an SUV and a motorcycle on US Highway 319 North Veterans Drive at 2:51 p.m. that day, according to the MPD incident report.
The reporting officer said he saw a man, later identified as Michael Furterman, lying unresponsive in the southbound lanes of Veterans Boulevard. After finding no pulse, the officer called the Georgia State Patrol to investigate the wreck.
“The motorcycle came to a stop at a red light on Veterans Parkway, facing northbound,” Georgia State Patrol Sergeant 1st Class Steven Koneguet told the Observer days after the accident.
He said a Honda Pilot was heading north on the back of the motorcycle. The driver is believed to have fallen asleep and the SUV hit the rear of the motorcycle.
The motorcycle driver, Footman, died at the scene from his injuries, according to Korneghe.
No charges have been laid at the time of the crash, but GSP’s specialist collision reconstruction team has continued to investigate.
Patel was arrested on Tuesday, December 13 and charged with too close to a vehicle and second-degree motorist homicide.
