Vehicular Homicide Charges Filed

Vehicular homicide charges have now been filed against a Putnam County man, who was the driver involved in a fatal car crash in northern White County a week ago. The Tennessee Highway Patrol brought the charge against 22-year-old Daniel Garcia of Baxter. He was also charged with vehicular assault and DUI. Authorities say Garcia crashed his car into a tree on Wildcat Road early on the morning of October 9th. 32-year-old Putnam County resident Amy Tollison, a passenger in the vehicle, was killed in that wreck. Garcia is being held at White County Justice Center under a $250,000 bond.
