SC man charged with reckless homicide in Ky.

Mar 31, 2010 6:31:00 AM - thestate.com
A South Carolina trucker has been charged with two counts of reckless homicide after a wreck that killed two workers in eastern Kentucky.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that 44-year-old Arthur Davis of Blackwood, S.C., is being held on $2 million bond in Pike County. Davis told police he was unable to stop his truck as he headed down a hill on U.S. 460 hauling a load of equipment.

Police say the driver turned the truck to avoid hitting a building but instead hit the workers, who were employees of a tree-trimming company.

The wreck happened Monday in the Mouthcard community of Pike County.

Officials said 20-year-old Paul Williamson of Harold and 32-year-old Kevin D. Jones of Dorton died at the scene.
