Authorities say they believe an off-duty Madison County police officer involved in a fatal drunk driving crash over the weekend was also high on hydrocodone at the time of the accident.
Edgewood police officer James Foutch slammed his truck into the back of a car Sunday evening. The car was forced into a utility pole, killing Jesse Sperry. His 22-year-old wife, Rebecca, who was nine months pregnant, was injured. Their baby girl was delivered a short time later during an emergency C-section.
Officer Foutch is now free on bond.
