Warrant charges man in wreck that killed child

A grand jury arrest warrant was filed last week for a man accused of causing a wreck that killed a 7-year-old boy in October, authorities said.

The warrant charges Alan Bradley Harmon, 42, of Hephzibah, with homicide by motor vehicle in the first degree in the death of Jamal Lovett, said Richmond County Sheriff’s Capt. Scott Gay.

On the morning of Oct. 29, a white Honda Accord was northbound on Peach Orchard Road about 8:20 a.m. when the driver tried to turn left onto Willis Foreman Road and collided with a 2001 Chev­rolet Silverado pickup allegedly driven by Harmon.

The pickup struck the Honda on the passenger side, causing the car to split in two and the child in the back seat to be ejected.
