Fatal crash takes the life of well-known sculptor

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia State Patrol took out a first degree vehicular homicide warrant on a man charged with causing a crash that killed a noted sculptor.
 20-year old Corey Sease was already charged DUI, marijuana possession, and following too closely.

 He crashed into Andy Davis's motorcycle early Saturday morning in Henry County.

 Davis was taken off life support Monday night.

Convention and Visitors Bureau officials said it quickly became one of the most recognizable pieces of art in the state.

"Georgia Parks and Recreation recently featured it on as like a headline banner on our website and people come from all around the country. Even around the world just to see that plaza. Because it is a beautiful piece of work. Ray Charles fans they get to come and relax and listen to his music and take in a beautiful piece of work,” said Kristen Schuette, Manager of Marketing and Communications.

 Davis was recently picked to do a sculpture of Martin Luther King Junior for the state capitol grounds.
 He had already started designing the statue.
 That project is now on hold.
