Ohio Woman Charged In 2013 Crash That Killed 3

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.
