Shirley man involved in crash to face charges

GREENFIELD — Six months after a Shirley man admitted to drinking alcohol before he caused a serious car accident, prosecutors have brought criminal charges against him.

Thomas “Rick” Taylor, 49, told officers at the scene May 17 he’d been drinking beer before he ran a stop sign at the intersection of CRs 675E and 1000N and slammed into another car, according to charging documents filed Thursday in Hancock Circuit Court.
