WHITEWATER TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - An Indiana man faces charges after a fatal crash over the weekend.

Timothy Wayne Ingram, 33, of southeastern Indiana, faces two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide

Police say Ingram was traveling generally northbound in the southbound lanes of Interstate 275 early Saturday morning. He accessed the interstate by traveling the wrong way up the exit ramp from the highway to Kilby Road. 

Ingram struck a Mercury Grand Marquis operated by Dale Smith, 64, of Madeira, head-on. Smith was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger, Belma Johnson, was taken to the University Hospital.

A third vehicle, identified as a 1997 Acura, operated by Miss Brittany Gabbard, 18, of North Vernon, Indiana, was also involved in the crash. Gabbard's Acura struck Smith's vehicle in the first collision.  Gabbard and her passenger were not injured.

Southbound 275 was closed for just over three hours due to the crash.

Gabbard and her passenger were the only occupants wearing seatbelts.  Alcohol and/or drugs are believed to be a factor in the crash. 

Police say Ingram has a lifetime driver's license suspension (2006) and has been labeled a Habitual Traffic Offender by the State of Indiana. 

He is currently in police custody at University Hospital.
