A bottle of vodka was found at the scene of a fatal Atlanta garbage truck rollover earlier this month, and investigators blame the driver, police said.

Atlanta public works employee Melvin Callahan, 56, was charged Wednesday with first-degree homicide by vehicle, driving under the influence, reckless driving and failure to maintain lane in the Nov. 2 crash that killed colleague Derryl Simmons.

Simmons, 54, of Decatur, was thrown from the truck and killed when the city garbage truck he was riding in overturned while exiting I-75 southbound at Cleveland Avenue, police said.
