COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A grand jury has indicted a central Ohio man on charges of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence after police say the car he was driving struck and killed a tow-truck driver working on the side of the road in September.

The Franklin County grand jury indicted 31-year-old Brian Spencer on two counts each of aggravated vehicular homicide and operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. He is also charged with a single count of felony drug possession.

Police say Spencer was driving the car that struck 59-year-old John Carpenter on the side of state Route 104 on Sept. 22. Carpenter was preparing to tow a vehicle. Police say he was dead at the scene.
