Westwood resident Geanna Mitchell, 43, has been indicted for two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle in connection with the death of her grandson May 31 on the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge.

Hamilton County prosecutors said Mitchell drove daughter Terria Mitchell's 2003 Ford Explorer  while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and while under a driver's license suspension for failing to pay child support.

Prior to the incident, Terria Mitchell went to her mother's house in Westwood with her 4-year-old son Logan Mitchell to sleep before going to work. She asked her mother not to drive her car. Geanna Mitchell at some point took her daughter's vehicle, her grandson, and her own 9-year-old daughter with her.

Geanna Mitchell drove into Kentucky and upon her return to Ohio, she traveled left-of-center on the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge and struck a Toyota Sienna. Mitchell's SUV flipped and rolled over, and although her grandson was wearing a seatbelt, he was not in a child car seat and was pronounced dead at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

Geanna Mitchell, her daughter, and those in the other car were not injured enough to warrant criminal charges.
