Police say a man had a blood alcohol content of over two times the legal limit when he caused a fatal crash on Interstate 75 earlier this month.

Nicholas Taylor, 39, is charged with aggravated vehicular homicide.

The crash occurred Aug. 11 near the Hopple Street exit on I-75. Police say Taylor was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control of his Jeep Cherokee, traveled across multiple lanes of traffic and struck a Dodge Ram driven by Glen Delk, 46.

Delk's truck struck the guardrail and overturned. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A passenger in Delk's truck, Kathy Delk, 32, suffered minor injuries.

Police observed a strong odor of alcohol on Taylor and also noticed he had blood shot, watery eyes, slurred speech and poor balance. Taylor later admitted that he had been drinking. His blood alcohol content was .197, over two times the legal limit of .08.

Based on tire tracks and evidence located by investigating officers, police say Taylor was traveling at 73 miles per hour at the time of the crash.

Taylor is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning.
