A 25 year old man had been drinking at a friend’s house before getting into his car and hitting a Monroe man, killing him. Robert Jones was traveling 80 mph on Highway 601 when he hit 45 year old Michael Aycoth’s truck. The truck was knocked into the median, killing Aycoth.
Troopers say it’s a very unfortunate incident cause this is something that could have been avoided.
Jones is scheduled to appear in court on Monday and faces charges of involuntary manslaughter and felony death by vehicle.
