WILLIAMSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Clermont County grand jury has indicted a Williamsburg man in a crash that killed 16-year-Breanna Ritchie of Batavia.

Ryan Henry Pirrello is charged with Aggravated Vehicular Homicide.

The crash happened in November 2011 on Twin Bridges Road, one mile west of State Route 133.

Police had said the Mercury Grand Marquis driven by Pirrello was traveling south on Twin Bridges Road when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer, overcorrected and went off the right side of the road hit a guardrail and a tree.

Police also had said Ritchie was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident and alcohol was not a factor.

Pirrello and three other passengers in the car were hurt but not seriously.
