AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) - A driver is facing charges in a fatal accident involving a crane service truck last week.

John Boland, 64, is charged with homicide by vehicle, driving too fast for conditions and failure to stop for a stop sign.

Richmond County deputies say Boland was driving a crane service truck on Skyview Drive and attempting to turn onto New Savannah Road when the vehicle rolled over killing the passenger, 28-year-old Jordan Riddle.

An accident report said Boland told Richmond County deputies his brakes failed.
