POOLER, Ga. (WSAV) — A Hinesville man has been arrested in connection to a deadly pedestrian crash on I-95.
Nathan Lee Whitten was arrested and charged with 1st-degree homicide by vehicle, DUI, failure to maintain lane, improper passing on left, reckless driving, and driving too fast for conditions.
