DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A prosecutor says a man accused of causing the death of a woman in a crash that occurred while he had heroin in his system has been indicted on charges including aggravated vehicular homicide.

Montgomery County’s prosecutor says 30-year-old Joshua Hackney was indicted Wednesday in 74-year-old Kathleen Kidwell’s death. The Feb. 22 crash in the Dayton suburb of Harrison Township also injured Kidwell’s husband.

Authorities say Hackney drove left of center, striking the Kidwells’ vehicle head-on. Investigators say Hackney also had a baggie and a heroin syringe. The prosecutor says other counts against the New Carlisle man include aggravated vehicular assault, vehicular assault, tampering with evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A woman answering the phone at Hackney’s attorney’s office Thursday said they had no immediate comment on Hackney’s behalf.
