DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A man who authorities say was driving more than 100 miles when he crashed his pickup truck into a disabled car on Interstate 75 and killed the driver has been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide.

The Montgomery County prosecutor’s office says 55-year-old Thomas Eugene Leonard, of Franklin, was indicted by a grand jury on Wednesday. A summons was issued for him, and no attorney information was available Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Leonard was driving recklessly on I-75 near Dayton last Aug. 25 when he slammed into a car that had pulled onto the shoulder because of a flat tire.

The driver, 41-year-old Mitchell Munoz, who was sitting in the 2003 Audi waiting for a tow truck, was killed instantly.

Leonard will be arraigned June 16.
