SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Members of the Sylvester community continued to push for more information on a deadly wreck following two separate state investigations.

Bryan Overstreet died in April of 2015 after getting run over by a Worth County deputy.

State troopers said that blood tests showed his alcohol levels were three times the legal limit.

They believe he passed out in the road and was then run over by a deputy that couldn't see him in the dark.

Still, some in the community think there's more that happened.

They voiced their concerns at  a rally Sunday night. 

"You see what's going on in our community. They have control of the very structure that moves our people one way or the other," said rally organizer Antonio Carter.

According to his aunt Sally Davis, the family believes Overstreet was hit by the deputy while on the side of the road.

State troopers said that they found no evidence of that though.
