A Bainbridge truck driver has been charged in last week's fatal semi-tractor crash that left one man dead and a woman still hospitalized.

Dougherty County Police charged Michael Green of Bainbridge with misdemeanor vehicular homicide and following too closely in last Thursday's fatal crash.

Robert Blackledge of Baconton was killed when police said the tractor he was driving on U.S. 19 in south Dougherty County was rear ended by a semi-truck driven by Green.  

Another pickup truck driving behind Blackledge's tractor for driver notification was also hit by the semi. Driver Wilma McConnell is listed in good condition at Phoebe Putney Hospital.
