GSP says spice drug caused driver to crash in Leesburg

LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia State Patrol says Sunday afternoon a driver was traveling down Glendale when he hit a utility pole.

The GSP says James Taylor Woods admitted to smoking a drug called “spice” and law enforcers found a small bag of what they believe to be spice inside Woods' car.

Woods was headed southbound on U.S. 19 when the G.S.P. says Woods blacked out, and crossed over into the northbound lane, hitting the pole. 

Law enforcers say he managed to brake and barely tapped the pole.

Trooper Dan Avery says the car's front bumper only had minor damages , and the driver was okay.

So far, Woods has been charged with failure to maintain a lane, and DUI. 

Additional charges are pending.

Woods was transported to the Lee County Jail.
