Man charged in crash that killed Memphis police officer
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee man already convicted three times for driving under the influence now faces a vehicular homicide charge, accused of fatally rear-ending a police officer.
Authorities say Fair was stopped at a traffic light, headed home from work, when his Nissan Altima was hit from behind by Griffin’s Dodge Durango just after midnight on March 21 in Memphis.
Police said Griffin walked away but was arrested later. Online court records didn’t show a lawyer for him in this case late Thursday.
