ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta police say they have formally charged a Department of Public Works employee accused of having alcohol in his system at the time of a fatal crash that killed one of his co-workers.
Department spokesman Greg Lyon says Melvin Callahan has been charged with homicide by vehicle, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane.
City of Atlanta officials have said Callahan was driving a public works truck that overturned Nov. 2 and killed his 54-year-old co-worker.
Officials have said city departments have a zero tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol, and conduct random drug screenings on employees.
It's unclear if Callahan has an attorney.
