TIFTON — A young Barnesville woman is expected to turn herself in to the local police Monday and be charged with misdemeanor vehicular homicide and driving on the wrong side of the road — the same day as the funeral for the man she hit on the ABAC campus Nov. 27.

Holly Ann Pruitt, 18, an ABAC student, faces the charges after the Jeep Cherokee she was driving on Stallion Drive collided with the maintenance cart being driven by Jack Larry, 53. Larry, a Moultrie native who worked as custodial supervisor for Sodexho Services, the company that provides maintenance grounds services for the college, suffered severe head injuries as a result of the accident. He died Wednesday at Macon Medical Center. Larry was an employee at ABAC for 26 years.

Pruitt told Tifton Police officer Sgt. Jody Abad that her windshield was foggy when she crossed a double yellow line and struck Larry’s cart.

Larry’s funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at Gressette Gym on the ABAC campus. Burial will follow at Westview Cemetery in Moultrie.

According to an e-mail from Mike Chason, public relations director at ABAC, those who wish may send flowers or contribute through the ABAC Foundation to the Jack Larry Memorial Fund.

Larry is survived by his wife, Juanita Rowe Larry; two sons, Reginald Larry and Byron Larry, both of Tifton; three daughters, Damyta Jones and husband Gregory, Kayla Lundy, and Phylea Lundy, all of Tifton; four brothers, Horace Larry and Ellis Larry, both of Atlanta, Sammy Larry and wife Lena of Moultrie and Arthur Larry of Orlando, Fla.; five sisters, Mary Lucus and husband Willie James, Irma Griffin and Deloise Dotson, both of Moultrie, Carolyn McShane and husband Willie of Dale City, Va., and LaRosa Knighton of Macon.

Luke Strong and Son Mortuary of Moultrie is in charge of arrangements.
