Automobile accident

The driver in last month's triple fatality accident on South First Street told police he had taken shots over the course of the evening but was driving because he believed he was the most sober of the seven people in the vehicle, an affidavit associated with his arrest states.

Tyler Lewis, 17, of Jasper, was charged with three counts of intoxicated manslaughter for the deaths of Anastasia Gray, 19, of Carthage; Xzavien Grimble, 20, of Jasper; and Antownique Robertson, 18, of Carthage. He was arrested Dec. 17 and released on bond two days later.
