CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Bond was set Monday morning for a boater who is accused of causing a fatal crash on the Ohio River.

Glenn Riegelsberger, 53, was arraigned in Hamilton County court Monday morning, where his bond was set at $250,000.

Riegelsberger was indicted on two counts of aggravated vehicular assault, one count of vehicular assault, two counts of failure to stop after an accident and one count of operating a vessel in a low speed area in the death of Jeffrey Foster.

If convicted of all charges, he faces the possibility of 23 years in prison.

Riegelsberger is charged with causing the death of Foster on June 9 when both men were boating, in separate boats, on the Ohio River near Riverside Park in Sedamsville. 

Witnesses reported that Riegelsberger was operating his boat at an excessive speed in the harbor area. The boat that Riegelsberger was piloting ran over the top of the victim's boat, causing serious injury to Foster and his passenger, Jennifer Holwadel. 

The bow of Riegelsberger's boat struck Foster in the head. Foster was transported to University Hospital where he died two days later. Holwadel sustained a broken back in the incident.

Riegelsberger docked his boat after running over Foster's boat and fled from the scene on foot. Police found alcohol in Riegelsberger's boat when they searched it soon after the incident.
