Albany-- A truck driver, charged with three misdemeanor counts of second degree vehicular homicide in the deaths of a Dawson man and his two step children, is fined and will serve 24 months on probation.

Police say Andrew Kegler ran a red light at this intersection of Gillionville and Lockett Station roads in April 2001. Kegler's tractor trailer slammed into a S-10 pickup truck, killing 45-year- old James Alex Richardson of Dawson, and his two step children, 11-year-old Jacob Anderson Hayes and 17-year-old Kerri Ann Hayes.

Kegler pled no contest to the charges, and will serve 24 months on probation. He also payed a $379.00 fine for running a red light. A civil suit has been filed against Kegler and the trucking company by Kathleen Richardson, the wife of James and mother of Jacob and Kerri. That suit is still pending in Fulton County.
