THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A Mitchell County garbage truck driver is out of jail on charges he wrecked a garbage truck while high on drugs.
35-year old Kevin Sellers overturned a Seminole Sanitations truck in Thomas County Tuesday.
Investigators say he was driving under the influence of methamphetamine.
Troopers say Kevin Sellers was heading southbound on U.S. 19 driving a 2002 Sterling trash truck. "The driver of the truck crossed both southbound lanes of traffic entering into the grass median on Georgia 300, striking a flashing traffic sign as he entered the median," said Senior Trooper Kenneth Jones.
Troopers say Sellers was ejected the from the truck, and an illegal substance was ejected with him.
"We received a Crown Royal bag. Inside it contained a glass smoking device and a cellophane wrap containing methamphetamine," said Thomas County Narcotics Commander Kevin Lee.
Police say they think Sellers crashed because he was under the influence of methamphetamine. "A lot of times you don't know when the person has used the meth, how many days or hours they've been awake. It's real common for them to be awake for days at a time," said Lee.
Troopers say Sellers was transported to Archbold Memorial Hospital, but only suffered minor scrapes and bruises. "Yea we're very lucky. Very lucky no one else got hurt. Could have been a whole lot worse by it happening at the time it happened and on a busy road like 19," said Jones.
Seminole Sanitation says they have not made any official decisions yet, but they say if Sellers was officially driving while under the influence, he will be terminated.
Sellers is out of jail on bond.
He's charged with failure to maintain lane, Driving Under the Influence of drugs, and possession of methamphetamine.
