COSHOCTON, Ohio — A Coshocton man is charged with vehicular homicide after his out-of-control SUV hit two parked cars, killing a Columbus woman and seriously injuring her husband.
Authorities say a preliminary investigation indicated the brakes on Charles Miller's Ford Explorer may have failed before the Tuesday crash in Coshocton. The sheriff's office has estimated the SUV was traveling 60 mph when it hit the cars then overturned on a restaurant patio.
Mary Baldwin, 68, was standing next to one of those cars. The impact pushed it on top of her, killer her. Her 70 year old husband was flown to OSU's Wexner Medical Center in serious condition.
Miller could face up to 18 months in prison if convicted of the felony charge.
