LONDON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a man was inhaling from a can of compressed air to get high when his car veered across an Ohio highway median at high speed last month and crashed head-on into another car, killing a war veteran.

Twenty-seven-year-old Thomas Farley pleaded not guilty last week in Madison County court to aggravated vehicular homicide and aggravated vehicular assault.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol says Farley was driving around 100 mph when his 2013 Dodge Avenger veered across the median and hit a Toyota Prius head-on on Interstate 70 west of Columbus.

A passenger in the Prius, 49-year-old Carlos Martinez, was killed. He had recently retired from the Army, completing combat tours of duty in Afghanistan and Iraq.
