Jun 12, 2012

A Reynoldsburg man will be sentenced in August for causing a fatal crash while he was texting. 58-year-old Daniel Jacobs pleaded guilty yesterday to texting while driving along I-270 in 2010 and crashing into a parked drivers' education vehicle. The crash killed 16-year-old driving student Dalton Ludwig. Prosecutors say the conviction for aggravated vehicular homicide while texting is the first in Franklin County.
