— A worker at New South Distribution in Dalton who passed away after being found unconscious in the well of a tanker truck in September died of acute meth toxicity, an autopsy report shows.

Dalton Police Department spokesman Bruce Frazier said the report came back recently.

Brian Scotty Williams, 37, of Chatsworth, was supposed to be cleaning the truck well with a partner that day, according to police interviews with witnesses, but he started work by himself and was eventually found unconscious in the well of the truck.

Frazier said in December that Williams also had alcohol and amphetamine in his system.
