LIVINGSTON COUNTY – The man who was at the wheel of a pickup truck that crashed through the wall of a Dansville home, killing 4-month-old Calin Fly in the living room, is fighting Manslaughter charges and taking his case to trial.
Tracy Abbott, 52, stands charged with Manslaughter in the Second Degree, a C felony, following an indictment by a Grand Jury, and will go to trial on Feb. 1, 2016.
Abbott is known to have a history of seizures. During the investigation into the accident on Sept. 29, 2014, District Attorney Greg McCaffrey said that he was looking into possible license infractions in connection to the accident.
According to court paperwork, Abbott remembers going to turn onto a road near his house, next thing he knew he was waking up in his truck inside of a house.
Calin Fly was also known to be battling pneumonia, and possibly be facing open-heart surgery before the deadly crash. A fundraising page, called ‘Calin’s Crusaders,’ was set up in the aftermath of the accident.
Calin was kept in guarded condition at Strong Memorial hospital for a few days following the accident, but sadly passed away on Oct. 4, 2014.
According to Livingston County jail records, Abbott has made bail and is not in custody.
Abbott is represented by attorney Richard Kaul.
