A Trion man responsible for a deadly accident back in 2017 has not pleaded guilty to first-degree vehicular homicide and DUI.
 
41-year-old Brandon Heath Drennan pleaded guilty to the two charges recently in a Chattooga County Court Room. Drennan admitted responsibility for the April 2017 car wreck that killed local pastor Lavonne Humphrey on Hwy. 100 near Holland-Chattoogaville Road.
 
The Trion native also confessed that he was high on methamphetamine when the wreck occurred, and had already racked up seven DUIs in which six were in Chattooga County. 
 
He will serve seven years in prison and eight years of probation.
 
The Rome-Floyd Metro Task Force executed a search warrant and found high amounts of drugs.
Trion Police Chief David Gilleland told WZQZ News that the death is still under investigation, but for now, the incident is being treated as a fatal four-wheeler accident.
Several area roads still have standing water on them and some remain closed.
Due to potential flooding that could create unsafe road conditions tomorrow morning, Floyd County Schools will be on a 2-hour delay for all staff and students.
The National Weather Service has extended a flood watch through Friday night.
