Pickup truck driver charged
LA GRANGE -

Court officials say the case against a driver accused of causing a deadly crash was continued. 

Fred Green of La Grange is charged with misdemeanor by a motor vehicle and traffic violation of an unsafe movement, court officials said; troopers say he caused a crash that killed a pregnant woman.

Green’s pickup truck was seen in surveillance video pulling out in front of a tractor trailer that ran off the highway and hit a woman and her son. Troopers said the 18-wheeler likely swerved to avoid the pickup, causing the accident. Tiffany Smith, 22, died Sunday from injuries in the accident.

In a comment to News Channel 12, Green said of the accident, “I’m sorry for everything that happened,” Green also added, “It was not my intention of doing that. I have children of my own. I love them very much. I didn’t want to do anything to anyone else’s children. I pray for that family.”
