The Decatur Police Department has charged a woman involved in a fatal crash with manslaughter.
Jonna McGuyre, 33, surrendered Tuesday and is being held at the Morgan County Jail under a “no bond,” said Emme Long, police spokeswoman.
On July 8, McGuyre was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
Police said McGuyre was found to have methamphetamine when she was involved in a June 25 multiple vehicle collision on Point Mallard Parkway, just west of Refuge Headquarters Road.
Long said the investigation showed that a Chevy Tahoe driven by McGuyre lost control and hit two trucks and an SUV before colliding head on with a Nissan Versa, which was driven by 30-year-old Ramsey Williams in the northbound lanes.
Williams was pronounced dead at the scene.
There were minor injuries in the three other involved vehicles.
Two children, ages 1 and 4, who were in the vehicle with McGuyre at the time of the crash, were transported to Huntsville Hospital.
Further work by Traffic Homicide Investigators led to the manslaughter charge, Long said.
