CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A grand jury has indicted the woman accused of being under the influence when she drove the wrong way on Interstate 71 and crashed into an oncoming vehicle, killing another motorist. 

Taryn Chin, 22, of Finneytown, has been indicted on two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide after having her first court appearance Friday.

Her gray, 2014 Honda Odyssey went the wrong way on southbound I-71 near Dana Avenue and crashed into a 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier on Feb.17, Cincinnati police said.

The impact instantly killed the driver, Jose Arenas, 47, of Florence, according to police.

Chin took a breathalyzer test to measure her level of intoxication and blew 0.122, Lt. Bruce Hoffbauer has said.

It's not clear yet where she was coming from at the time of the crash or which ramp she used to get onto the wrong side of the highway, he said.
