SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -  A bond hearing was held Wednesday morning for 61-year-old William Fishbaugh, of Greenwich, Ohio, the trucker in that wreck in Worth County Tuesday.

His bond was set at $10,000. His trucking company, Dutch Made Logistics Industries in Willard, Ohio, will post his bond. It will be 6 to 9 weeks before alcohol/drug test results are back.

25 year old Julie Tyler of Hahira was killed when that truck driver ran a stop sign at Highways 112 and 133. Tyler worked for LifeTouch Portraits.

When her car hit the big rig, it became lodged below the undercarriage and was dragged nearly 500 feet as the truck skidded down the highway.

Fishbaugh is charged with reckless driving, running a stop sign and 1st degree vehicular homicide. The 1st degree vehicular homicide is based on the reckless driving charge.

He was charged with reckless driving because there were eight indicators that he was supposed to stop; two "Stop Ahead" signs, three sets of rumble strips, two stop signs on both sides of the road, and a red flashing light.
