COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A central Ohio woman has been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide following a car crash last year that killed three people, including two passengers in the woman’s car.
Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien says defendant Melissa Ann Robins had a blood-alcohol level of .104 at the time of the September 2013 crash, above the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
O’Brien says Robins drifted into oncoming traffic, hitting a car head-on and injuring a family of five, including a 9-year-old boy who died.
O’Brien says a father and his adult son in Robins’ car died at the scene.
A grand jury on Friday indicted Robins on multiple counts of aggravated vehicular homicide, four counts of vehicular assault and two counts of drunken driving.
Court records don’t list an attorney for Robins.
