The agency was not able to say whether Meyer and passenger David Stone, 43, of Nashville, were wearing safety belts.

Meyer, 37, 3508 Sylvester Drive, was charged with driving under the influence, driving while license is suspended or revoked, failure to maintain lane and duty upon striking fixture.

Stone was transported to Colquitt Regional Medical Center but refused treatment, a hospital spokeswoman said.
