Albany--Friends of a teenager killed in a crash this week want to make sure he has a proper burial. 16-year old Guy Tanner died Tuesday night in a crash on Lover's Lane Road in Lee County. His family did not have burial insurance and is having a tough time paying for the funeral. "So we're starting a fund at Security Bank for people to donate to help with the final expenses," Wes Westbrook said.
Tanner was a passenger in a pick-up truck driven by 21-year old Clifford Sanspree. Sanspree is charged with vehicular homicide and DUI. If you want to donate to the Tanner fund, Contact Security Bank in Albany or Heritage Formal Wear.
