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.
Taylor had three children, including his young son and daughter, in his Chevrolet pickup truck at the time of the accident. None of the children was wearing a seatbelt, police reports state.
