HAHIRA, GA (WALB) - The State Patrol's collision reconstruction team spent part of the day at the site of that deadly truck/car crash in Worth County.

Troopers say the truck driver, 61 year old William Fishbaugh, ran the stop sign at Highways 112 and 133.

He's charged with vehicular homicide in the death of 25-year-old Julie Tyler, who's car ran underneath his trailer.

Tyler worked for Lifetouch Portraits and took pictures of school kids.

Second grade teacher Becky Shuman remembers when Tyler took portraits at her school in Hahira.

She also taught Tyler 17 years ago.

"Well it's just devastating to lose a little soul," said Becky Shuman, Hahira Elementary School. "I mean I still see her as a second grader sitting in my classroom and it's just heart breaking for our community and her family."

Tyler's funeral services are Saturday at Charity Baptist Church at 3 p.m.
