HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — A truck driver from Euclid, Ohio is now facing charges after police said he caused a fiery crash that killed four people in Henry County last Thursday.
Mohabe McCoy, 39, has been charged with vehicular homicide, improper turn and driving too fast for conditions.
Surveillance video shared from the Legacy Ford car dealership in McDonough showed that McCoy, who was driving a tractor trailer, did not slow down with traffic and plowed into the white Chevy, which was hauling a load of pine straw. The Chevy slammed into a big rig slowed down in front of it and crunched between the two trucks, creating a massive inferno.
All four people in the Chevy pickup died. They were all from Dublin, Georgia and have been identified as driver 42-year-old Jose Ibarra Yanez, 31-year-old Juana Adaliris Ortiz-Martinza, 26-year-old Jaime Sanchez and 20-year-old Fermin Sanchez.
A Laurens County teenager told 13 WMAZ that his father, Ibarra-Yanez, regularly hauled pine straw to Atlanta.
