A Nicholson, Georgia man will face a charge of first-degree vehicular homicide and related charges in an accident that killed a Toccoa man in Madison County last week.

Roy O’Barr, 25, of Toccoa was killed in the two-car accident Friday morning on Friendship Church Road near Danielsville.

According to a Georgia State Patrol spokesperson, O’Barr was driving a Ford Fairlane south on Friendship Church Road at about 7:20 a.m. Friday when a Mitsubishi Montero Sport traveling north on Friendship Church Road failed to maintain lane, crossed the center line, and struck O’Barr’s Ford head on.

O’Barr died on the scene and his brother, Nathan O’Barr, 25, of Mt. Airy, was flown to Atlanta Medical Center.

The Georgia State Patrol identified the driver of the Mitsubishi as Alex Clay Fortson, 50, of Nicholson.

Besides first-degree vehicular homicide, authorities said Fortson also faces charges of DUI, hit and run, and failure to maintain lane.
