Summerville man pleads guilty in DUI crash that killed Dalton motorcyclist in 2018 in Chattooga Co.
A 28-year-old Summerville man confessed that his marijuana intoxication resulted in the death of a Dalton motorcyclist in May 2018. Alexander Scott Pysher of Maverick Drive in Summerville, pleaded guilty to first-degree homicide by vehicle and DUI, according to Chattooga County Superior Court records. Judge Kristina Cook Graham ordered "defendant shall, on the anniversary of the incident date, make an annual donation to a cancer society approved by the probation officer in the victim’s name.” Pysher was also sentenced to 15 years of probation, fined $2,050 and given 4-6 months in a probation detention center. He must also complete a non-residential substance-abuse program. According to court records, he was sentence under Georgia’s First Offender Act. According to The Georgia State Patrol SCRT Pysher crossed the center line in his 2006 Dodge Stratus and struck 74-year-old Windom Frank Willis on his Kawasaki. Willis struck Pysher’s windshield and was thrown several feet away. County Coroner Earle Rainwater was called to the site of the wreck and pronounced Willis dead at the scene. Charges were filed later that year after a blood test returned showing Pysher was under the influence and follow-up investigation by the GSP Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT).
