Man faces charges in wreck that killed two

Austin Hunter Greene, 22, faces charges in connection with a wreck earlier this year that killed two people. The Grand Jury indicted Greene with two counts of vehicular homicide in the second degree, driving on the wrong side of the roadway, failure to maintain lane and failure to use due care. Bond was set at $15,000. He turned himself in at the Pike County Sheriff’s Office. His toxicology reports were negative for drugs and alcohol. The wreck occurred around 6:40 a.m. March 9 between the library and schools when Greene’s F-150 truck crossed into oncoming lanes and struck a Chevrolet Traverse head on, instantly killing Kimberly Lee, 55 of Lafayette, Louisiana and James Wisniewski, 56, of Allen, Texas. One passenger was life flighted to Grady as was Greene. The F-150 caught fire on impact and Greene was dragged from the burning vehicle by a citizen who was first on the scene. The driver and two passengers in the Chevrolet Traverse were car-pooling to work when the wreck happened, killing two of them and seriously injuring the third.
