FULTON, Miss. – A 19-year-old driver, accused of hitting and killing a Mississippi Wildlife Fisheries and Parks officer last month, was not driving drunk, according to a toxicology report.
Cody Weaver had initially been charged with negligent homicide in the death of Master Sergeant John Collum. Investigators said he was speeding, going about 75 miles per hour at the time. However, Itawamba County Sheriff Chris Dikinson said Thursday, the final report from the Mississippi Highway Patrol points to Collum’s death as being an accident. Dickinson said the report will be given to a grand jury so it can decide whether or not charges against Weaver should be dropped.
